Privy Council rules flawed Belize Dam can be built

Date : 30th January 2004, Source : ENS



LONDON, UK, January 30, 2004 (ENS) - A high court in London Thursday decided the fate of a rainforest valley in the Central American nation of Belize inhabited by endangered jaguars, tapirs and scarlet macaws. Ruling in the first environmental case it has ever considered, the Privy Council decided that a hydroelectric dam may be built that will flood the valley over the opposition of environmental groups and business owners who sued to stop the dam construction.
