The decision, numbered ARB/15/31, marks a victory for civic and conservation efforts, while Romanian politicians have been criticized for undermining the state's defense in international arbitration.

Gabriel Resources Announces Contestation of Tribunal's Decision in Roșia Montană Case: Following the Arbitral Tribunal's decision in favor of Romania in the Roșia Montană case, Gabriel Resources Ltd. and Gabriel Resources (Jersey) announced their intention to contest the decision. The companies believe that the majority decision is profoundly erroneous and argue that political interference by the Romanian government hindered the development of the mining project.
