Court suspends container terminal expansion at the Port of SalvadorMay, 31, 2019 Posted by datamarnews
Judge Ruy Eduardo Almeida Britto, from the 6th court of the Public Treasury, suspended the expansion contract for the Container Terminal at the Port of Salvador. The injunction was obtained through a public lawsuit.
Britto considered that the absence of authorization from the Municipal Environmental Council (Coman) prevents the works from going forward.
Although Coman has an advisory role it should be consulted in the authorization of works that have an environmental impact. In this case, the agency understood that the expansion of the Port of Salvador would cause great damage to the environment of the city as it does not comply with the Municipal Coastal Management Plan.
According to the decision, the city must suspend the license and the work must be stopped immediately, with a daily fine of R$5,000 for Tecon.
