-seeks $50M for trespass

Gold miner Royston Stuart has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the government as he claims that it is allowing the Mahdia Magistrate’s Court to be built on land licensed to him and where he has been prospecting for two decades.

In his action against the Registrar of the Supreme Court, the Attorney General and Pierre and Maria Walcott of M&P Investments—by whom the court building is being constructed – Stuart is seeking damages in excess of $50,000,000 for trespass.

He also wants an injunction restraining the Walcotts and the Registrar and their servants and/or agents from building or continuing to erect any building or from entering upon or remaining or occupying or in any manner whatsoever interfering with his quiet, peaceful use and enjoyment of his land…..
