I, (Name) :
Offer my full support to the panel of judges in the Buyat case in order that they may have the courage to make a just finding in this case, recalling that judgments in environmentally related cases often end in disappointment for affected communities.
We will continue to monitor developments in the legal process between the government and Newmont Minahasa Raya in the Buyat case. We support the struggle of the Buyat community to attain justice and a better life.
We hope that the honorable panel of judges will issue a decision which does not harm the community and the environment. This decision will determine the fate of the Buyat residents and the future management of the environment affected by Newmont’s mine.
We thank you for your attention.
