Comments to previous post on Barrick's settlement offer and Rogue tactics


Isabel P. Ball I appreciate Ms. Couman's efforts. Though ATS was a subject for interpretation, and the U.S. Supreme Court finally sealed its doors to foreign cases on human rights and the environment abuse, the U.S. Counsel seemed oblivious of the threat and magnitude of the court's impending decision. One other confusing aspect pertains to the pose of Counsel Scott having had basically thrown in the towel, and he wants out of the case. So what is Marinduque still waiting for after it has made it's firm position in opposition of the settlement, hook, line, and sinker. It is again too still a night for Marinduquenos, receiving no pronouncements after making the resounding NO against Barrick. Lastly, I tend to question the legal strategy made by PG to pursue the case in the U.S. instead of in Canada. There were unfounded fear that Canadian court might only allow a small compensation for the damages apart from the judges also dubiously pro Barrick, a decision that locals here refer to as a hometown decision.


  • Marinduque Mandin So to summarize, there is no legal reason why Marinduque cannot continue its case against Barrick in Canada. Both the Nevada judge and Barrick have argued that Canada is the appropriate place for the case to continue. Furthermore, there are lawyers and law firms in Canada who would be very interested in pursuing a case such as this one. 

    Finally, I am writing this to set the record straight, but strongly feel that, as Marinduquenos consider their options, it is the responsibility of Marinduque’s lawyer, Atty. Walter Scott to ensure that his clients are given valid, and complete information by anyone associated with him and with the case.
  • Marinduque Mandin alam na kong ano ang dahilan ni roque sino ang nasa likod nito.. tsk tsk tsk talaga naman.
  • Caesar Sadiwa Devera tawag diyan ay deception of the highest order pag nagsanib aring mga puwersa ng gubyerno at mga abogadong sanay sa pagmamanipula panggagamit at oagbubulaan sa mga taong tulog
