Expert Witness Engagement

Posted Posted by Rob in News     Comments No comments


Director Rob Holmes has been engaged as an exert witness by the Dublin law firm A L Goodbody in support of a civil action scheduled to be heard in the Dublin High Court in Spring 2011. This is being taken by the law firm’s Dutch client who is suing for damages resulting from the alleged misclassification and mismanagement of hazardous waste exported from a pharmaceuticals manufacturing facility in Ireland to an allegedly inappropriate and inadequately permitted treatment facility in Belgium under Transfrontier Shipment regulations. Process residues from the treatment facility were supplied to the animal feed chain. The matter came to light when Dutch pig farmers complained to their regulators of health problems in their animals and the identification of contaminants allegedly from the treatment facility in pig feed in mid-2002. The action is being taken against the waste producer and their waste brokers at the time of the incident.
