MR. JUSTICE MALES:
"We thank you for inviting us to attend these tripartite meetings. We have attended today in good faith, with the sole purpose of working together with all parties to further the interests of us all, and enhance the development of the Etinde Permit. However, as a result of litigation commenced by EurOil yesterday at the High Court in London, the papers for which were served on us only 90 minutes before the hearing commenced, we regret that we are unable to participate in this meeting, other than to observe. We are providing you with a sealed order of the court, with which we must comply and which we will vigorously contest next week when the case is back before the Judge. We are unable to comment further at this stage, other than to state again that our sole objective is to make this project a success for all parties involved".
