X-Press Pearl Case

WNPS filed an application with the Human Rights Commission seeking relief for the environmental damage caused. WNPS also got a group of fishermen to file a complaint at the HRC seeking relief for damages caused to their livelihood from the disaster.

WNPS is still in the process of preparing documents and gathering information. The strategy is to request the government to formulate policies and SOP to prevent a similar incident in the future. WNPS is trying to liaise with the Marine Environment Protection Authority to understand their grievances so that we can reflect that in the Petition to be filed in court.
