The Environment Tribunal will deliv­er its ruling in January in an appeal case filed by Tengy Cement Limited against the Director of Environment’s de­cision to decline Tengy’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) application.

Tengy Cement had applied to the Depart­ment of Environment seeking EIA to be conducted at an old village site formally known as Cirikoteri, now called Naivicula Village in the district of Sawakasa in Tai­levu.

Tengy Cement made an application for an EIA proposing Wainivilimi limestone ex­traction.

Upon the inspection by the Department of Environment, ancestral human remains were found in the area when the EIA was conducted. The Director of Environment Sandeep K. Singh declined Tengy Cement’s EIA.
