Bahamas Supreme Court judgement on the Judicial Review of the consultation process by Hawksbill Creek Agreement Review Committee - May 8, 2016 - 9:04:14 AM

Frederick Smith QC and Carey Leonard challenging the manner in which the consultation process was conducted by the Hawksbill Creek Agreement Review Committee.

The Grand Bahama Port Authority Limited intervened in this action to ensure that the interests of all licensees were properly represented and because it had likewise earlier conveyed to the Hawksbill Creek Committee, on several occasions, fundamental concerns regarding their consultation exercise being undertaken without disclosure of the McKinsey Report to the community.
