ABSTRACT
The article offers information on not taking the consent of the traditional landowners of the Northern Territory of Australia by the Northern Land Council (NLC) before nominating Muckaty Station for dumping nuclear waste. It discusses how the plan of acquiring the land for dumping waste got halted due to consideration of the land as a sacred site by the traditional landowners. It also presents the views of Australian Jurist Ron Merkel regarding the improper consultation with the locals.
