In a release, the Environmental Management Authority said the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council dismissed the appeal by FFOS against the award of the Certificate of Environmental Clearance (CEC) granted to the Ministry of Works in the Cumuto Highway matter.
The Privy Council Board's judgment will be delivered on October 8th 2018.
The matter surrounds the granting of a CEC to the Ministry of Works and Transport in June 2017.
The CEC was granted for the establishment of a 5000-metre highway in the Sangre Grande area.
FFOS alleged that the EMA's grant of the permit to the Ministry was "unreasonable, illegal, procedurally improper, irrational, null and void, and of no effect."
