FFOS will continue its pilgrimage

Dear Editor/Newsroom,

The FFOS appeal for leave for judicial review for the grant of a CEC for the construction of the 5000m highway, from Cumuto to Sangre Grande, along the southern boundary of The Aripo Savannas, an Environmentally Sensitive Area, was dismissed today before the Court of Appeal.

FFOS is deeply disappointed by today’s ruling. We are determined, however, to explore all legal means of recourse to protect this natural heritage site which belongs to all citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

FFOS will be urgently seeking leave to go before the Privy Council in England to appeal this judgment as we strongly believe in the merits of our case. FFOS will persevere until ecological and environmental justice is served for the voiceless communities of the Aripo Savannas.
