The notice of withdrawal posted by Mr Tripathi on Twitter related to an internal appeal against the amendment of an environmental authorisation issued to Exxaro Coal Mpumalanga Pty Ltd. The appeal was based on a technical legal point with regards to which authority was competent to authorise that amendment.
The FSE did not accept anything in exchange for the withdrawal of the appeal.
The FSE works to achieve environmental and social justice in areas affected by coal, gold, platinum and uranium mining in Gauteng, Northwest and Mpumalanga. A full description of our activities, as well as our audited financial statements, are available on our website.
