In this legal action and for the opposing parties, none other than their most senior partners, heads the pack of the big legal guns - representing two of the top Portuguese legal firms. We were pleasantly surprised to see in their midst an ex-government minister. We are honoured by the fact that our legal actions deserve such highly respected opposition.
As a result of their objection to our Class Action, the court (TAF Loulé) has instructed us to publish an advertisement informing all the interested parties in this action of this challenge brought forward against all of us (i.e. anyone that is against the offshore drilling by the ENI/Galp consortium in Aljezur’s surrounding ocean).
This advert will be published in a major national newspaper on Friday 21 September 2018.
THIS IS AN EARLY WARNING of what’s to come so that you can prepare yourself to act during the course of next week, if you are really serious about not wanting any deep-offshore oil drilling in the Portuguese surrounding oceans.
On Friday 21 September, we will publish a copy of the published advert, as well as guidelines on how to ensure that ASMAA can legally and with the full support of the Portuguese legal system be your voice in this matter. So that we can continue to represent you against what we perceive as one of the biggest risk to our environment, our quality of life and the overall public interest.
