Aboud: BPTT trying to influence judgment*


Secretary of Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS) Gary Aboud yesterday claimed that BPTT is attempting to influence a judgment on seismic surveys which is currently before the High Court.
The judgment expected to be delivered on December 8, is based on whether or not seismic surveys should be subject to environmental impact assessments prior to being issued Certificates of Environmental Clearance by the Environmental Management Authority (EMA).
Aboud also claimed BPTT is using one of its ads featuring geophysicist Alicia Gargee to subtly influence the Court’s imminent decision.
