Court rules to protect eco-sensitive area

Publish date: 23 March 2020

Category: Zambia

Eight senior Zambian headmen and a traditional princess have challenged the behaviour of the government's private-public partnership company, Zambia Airforce Projects Ltd, in relation to a building project in an environmentally critical area. Now they have been rewarded by a tough court response in their favour, writes Carmel Rickard in her A Matter of Justice column on the Legalbrief site. A Court of Appeal judge who heard the application by the traditional leaders has issued an order stopping any further work in the area until key environmental law issues have been satisfied and the court gives the company the go-ahead to continue.
