As government prepares to meet today with prospective buyers of Guyana’s first three cargoes of crude from ExxonMobil’s Liza-1 field offshore Guyana, attorney Sanjeev Datadin says he will be filing court action to block any agreements made during those discussions.
“Legal proceedings are being contemplated to set it aside; that is, to set aside any contract [from being made]. We can’t stop anybody from meeting but they can’t conclude arrangements if they have no authority,” Datadin told Stabroek News yesterday.
“As soon as tomorrow [today], those documents will be filed in the local courts,” he said, adding that they will also ask government to explain how it arrived at inviting only some buyers and what process was used in procuring advice on same. Datadin said that he will be filing the court action on behalf of a concerned citizen but declined to name his client
