By Aaron Humes: Boiton Minerals Limited, contrary to their protests, will be liable for various breaches of their Environmental Compliance Plan (ECP), according to a joint statement from the Ministries of Natural Resources and Sustainable Development.
After the joint inspection of the BML operations in the Chiquibul National Park by government agencies and Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) in June, a report was produced and authorities met with the company to begin the process of rectifying the problems and restore the company to compliance, but, the Ministries say, they will not escape penalties and fines for the breaches.
The Government recommits to addressing the isues of illegal activity in the areas and strengthening collaborations between itself, private agencies and civil society, and balancing socio-economic development with protection and proper management of natural resources.
