The Brook Valley Community Group and the Court of Appeal hearing June 2018

Helen from The Brook

This appeal was based on the previous judgement that hazardous substances such as eco-toxic poison baits are not seen as a substance when in a river or on a riverbed and the costs awarded by judge Churchman against Brook Valley Community Group (BVCG).

Below is two short videos with Lawyer Sue Grey.

Video 2: Sue Grey: Poison Legalities

Some staunch Sanctuary/council supporters would prefer BVCG to pay up and go away. The legality of this poison drop has nation wide implication which needs to be settled by law hence BVCG is following through what we started even though our Valley were poisoned.

As for paying up. This is my personal view: 'The question of why should a community group pay the Sanctuary expenses when their legal representation had been pro bono? David Butler announced during the Sanctuary AGM that they had received the value of $600,000 pro bono work from their law firm and in addition the Sanctuary set up a Givealittle page and received further $32.000 from donations towards legal expenses. I don't believe it is right. Aren’t the council/raterpayer donations enough to keep their $300,000+ salaries per year enough?'

The appeal was held in front of three judges, no new evidence were allowed into the hearing. It is expected to take about 2-3 months before we hear the outcome of this appeal.
