Alleged disregard for nature and human beings.
“A Forestry expert describes the alleged releasing of oil into the ocean by a logging company operating in North West Guadalcanal as a deliberate disregard for nature and human beings.
“Last weekend he witnessed extensive amounts of oil, spilled on the seawater surface between Kakabona and Bogehe beach in North West Guadalcanal.
“He observed that the illegal pollution was done by those manning a logging barge floating in the area during the weekend.
“The expatriate who want his name withheld told the paper that he also checked the Forest Act, which he concluded that the company and more especially the responsible licensee allegedly failed to comply with what they’re required of.
“He pointed out in Europe such action subject to a very heavy fine.”
