High Court Justice Brian Cottle has refused to give permission to the Barbuda People’s Movement (BPM) to challenge the approval processes in the Paradise Found multi-million dollar resort project in Barbuda. Those who left the meeting distraught and angry at the contempt shown to Barbudans regarding the full details of the project and the illegal voting procedure know that this battle is not going to be easy – and they will appeal.
The judgement appears to have –
1. Ignored the law requiring Council to publish full details of the proposal with notice for the meeting at the five locations in the village specified in the regulations.
