On June 20, 2014, the East African Court of Justice at Arusha, First Instance Division (the Court), issued its decision in African Network for Animal Welfare v. Attorney General of the United Republic of Tanzania. The Court held that the proposal by Tanzania to build a highway across the Serengeti National Park was unlawful and issued an injunction restraining Tanzania from operationalizing the proposal. According to the press release, the Court found that the proposal infringed multiple articles of the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community, including Article 5(3)(c), which provides for “the promotion of sustainable utilization of the natural resources . . . and the taking of measures that would effectively protect the natural environment of the Partner States.”
