Opposition Leader David Granger wants mining operations suspended until appeal is heard – 23rd Jan 2013
Opposition Leader David Granger says, that the Administration should go back to the drawing board on the Amerindian Act. Granger believes that mining operations in the disputed area should be put on hold until the appeal is heard.
Granger also thinks that the Government’s approach in addressing the ongoing dispute between the mining community and the Amerindian village is part of the problem.
The APNU Leader noted that with the boom in the mining sector, free, prior and informed consent is needed with the community leaders.
He said that the high court ruling was an insult to the things the Amerindian people have been fighting for, over the years.
