The Requestors called for CRMU to handle their complaint through both problem-solving and compliance review. During the preliminary review of this Request to determine if it meets the registration requirements of the Operating Rules and Procedures of the Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), CRMU received on 15 July 2016 the Second Request which was sent by two individuals, Mr. Cheikh Fadel Wade and Mr. Daouda Gueye on behalf of some other affected members of the communities in Bargny.Mr. Daouda challenged the representational authority of the First Requestors to act on behalf of all the PAPs. Standing on their own right, they requested to register their complaint for compliance review of the project. The two Requests raise similar issues with regard to the negative impacts of the Sendou coal power plant.
