Activists believe time may be up for the alleged mismanagement of the Costa Brava landfill, as three separate legal actions look to shut the operation down or at least push the site's managers to allow greater oversight.The suit is currently under the jurisdiction of Judge Rola Chamoun at Aley's Court of Urgent Matters.Even if Chamoun does order Costa Brava's closure, the lawyers said that it would likely be temporary and that no immediate solution is in sight, which is why they are at the very least aiming for greater oversight, regardless of the legal procedure's outcome.Under Aoun and Ibrahim, separate investigations will be launched into the CDR's and JCC's finances, as well as the management of the landfill and its environmental impact.According to Ollaik and another UFL lawyer, Cynthia Hamawi, the accumulation of their legal actions have forced the operators to sit at the table and settle.A final hearing under Chamoun's jurisdiction will take place Wednesday, after which the verdict will be announced.
