Rio Tinto has only bad options as it tries to salvage its $2.4 billion Serbian lithium project after the country's leaders bowed to environmentalists and cancelled it last week. The Anglo-Australian miner could sue the government, a step likely to fail and further antagonise Belgrade, or bet that pro-mining politicians emerge victorious in April parliamentary elections, a result that would embolden opponents. People inside Rio said that while they were aware of the political tensions around the project, the government's decision to pull the plug was a surprise that left the company scrambling for a strategy on how to proceed.
The Government is amending existing regulations ‘to streamline the process and provide certainty to those approaching the end of their lives’.

ZURICH (Reuters) -Credit Suisse on Tuesday flagged roughly 500 million Swiss francs ($546 million) in litigation provisions, which it said in combination with a goodwill hit was expected to practically wipe out its fourth-quarter pre-tax profit.
