Dredging company Boskalis is extracting sand nearby the city of Makassar, Indonesia for the expansion of the city's port. The extraction is affecting the fishing grounds of local fishermen and entails the risk of coastal erosion. Although Boskalis claims to have conducted extensive research into the risks of the extraction and the consequences of its conduct for the local communities, it refuses to share the information with the local communities. The local communities have not yet received any information about the project, making it impossible for them to assert their rights. 

Both ENDS is requesting the court to order Boskalis to share the information about the project, including the (environmental) permits and risk analyses, with the local communities. Channa Samkalden and Elles ten Vergert are representing Both ENDS in this matter.
