Thursday, April 3, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Preliminary response from US Capital Energy to the decision handed down this morning by Justice Michelle Arana has been that the company will proceed with drilling at its site in Toledo.
This is, according to attorney Michael Peyrifitte, is because the judge did not give “injunctive relief” which in layman’s terms means that Justice Arana did not explicitly order a stoppage of works at the drill site.
Peyrifitte and US Capital Energy’s country representative Alistair King say they will review the judge’s decision but at first glance see no reason to discontinue drilling activities.
Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management, (SATIIM) Greg Choc, says that he has not abandoned the application for an injunction to stop US Capital Energy from commencing drilling.
