But the public isn’t allowed to participate properly
Vancouver-based Greystar reports that a public hearing took place to consider the Environmental Impact Study for its controversial Angostura project.
However, Colombian deputy, Roberto Schmalbach, reports that there was a lack of sufficient guarantees to ensure broad participation for the event. According to the representative of the Polo Democratico Party, 250 people from the Municipality of Bucaramanga planning to attend the hearing, but had to turn back due to inclement conditions. According to the same report, state officials denied them the opportunity to have the hearing postponed.
Greystar Resources is a Canadian company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, but it also has a listing on London’s Alternative Investment Market.
