Hearing of suit against govt’s move to mine in Atewa forest in the Eastern Region begins

The hearing of the suit in which a group of environmentalists, climate change activists, individuals, civil society and non governmental organizations have dragged government to court over the prospecting bauxite mine in the Atewa Range Forest has commenced.

The plaintiffs are challenging government’s move to mine bauxite in the Atewa Range Forest and arguing that the government is undertaking mining activities in the Forest without mineral right.

Arocha Ghana and 10 other plaintiffs are urging the court to compel the government to restore or pay the cost of damages that had been caused as a result of recognisance, prospecting and clearing of roads in the Forest.

Currently before the High Court in Accra presided over by Justice John Nyante Nyandu, Dr Seth Appiah Kubi, the National Director of Arocha Ghana who is an environmentalist is in the witness box giving evidence.
