Ramu nickel case is back

15 04 2011

The Ramu nickel case returns to court today, 15 April 2011.

The landowners of Madang have taken out this court case seeking a permanent injunction against the Ramu nickel mine from dumping toxic mine waste into the sea.

It is expected today that the judge will set the date when the final decision will be handed down.

In the meantime, there is a temporary injunction in place preventing the mine to do any further dumping during the course of this trial.

The Ramu nickel mine is a joint venture operation between the Chinese state owned Metallurgical Chinese Corporation and the Australian mining firm Highlands Pacific. The irony in it is that this practise of waste dumping into the sea is banned in both China and Australia.

We are praying that the truth prevails and the people come out the winner for the sake of this country and its future.
