Costa Rica reaffirms commitment to respect court’s decision on Crucitas mine

Friday, October 22, 2010

The Costa Rican government reaffirmed its position this week that it will respect the decisions of the courts regarding the controversial Crucitas open pit gold mine in northern Costa Rica.

The announcement came after three mine opponents who are on a huger strike in front of the presidential residence. The legality of the Crucitas executive decree is being weighed by Costa Rica’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal. Hearings in the case could conclude next week.
