Stop Press! Final prosecution hearing date set - 22 August, 2014

After an unprecedented 5 year long criminal trial, the prosecution of Sibelco for illegal removal of island non-mineral sand is finally drawing to a close. The final hearing date has been set – 22 August, 2014! It will be heard in Warwick, as the magistrate hearing the case has been transferred there. The evidence against the company was obtained by the former EPA in late 2008. The evidence included incriminating company records seized from Sibelco’s Stradbroke office.
