Ok Tedi Mine

Sir Mekere begins legal suit on Ok Tedi Act

This is the Act through which the State expropriated PNG Sustainable Development Program Ltd’s 63.4 percent shareholding in the Ok Tedi mine, and purports to give the State the right to restructure the company into a State entity.

Sir Mekere has brought the case as a private citizen because he believes there are serious Constitutional flaws in the Act, and that it is harsh, oppressive and unjust.
