Amicus curiae submission by Alburnus Major, Centrul Independent pentru Dezvoltarea Resurselor de Mediu and Greenpeace Romania

In Romania, village people from Rosia Montana protested against a Canadian gold mining project, which would have destroyed their natural and cultural heritage. They managed to stop the illegal permit before local courts. As a response, the mining company sued Romania for 3.3 billion US Dollars under the Canadian-Romanian Bilateral Investment Treaty before the World Bank investment arbitration tribunal. On behalf of Rosia Montana NGO Alburnus Maior, the Independent Centre for the Development of Environmental Resources (ICDER), and Greenpeace Romania, civil society lawyers from the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL), ClientEarth, and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) filed the amicus brief to present new facts and perspectives regarding the constitutional and human rights violations suffered by the local community.
