APAMO says it is in full support of SATIIM’s application for a Post-Judgment injunction and impending ‘on the ground’ actions to restrain US Capital Energy Belize Ltd from conducting oil drilling in the Sarstoon Temash National Park. The organization says that
“The issuance of an extension to US Capital Energy Belize despite the Court’s judgment can only be interpreted as an outright disregard for the rule of law.”
APAMO says it is appealing to the Government to follow the Court ruling and to engage the Maya people in consultations and negotiations prior to any further oil drilling. The organization also asks that the permit extension be rescinded.
