Erin Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture: EV) reports that the Serbian International Arbitration Court will reconvene on May 20, 2009 to continue the examination of witnesses in Erin’s legal action against the Serbian national power corporation (further to Erin’s news release of December 16, 2008). As previously reported, Erin is seeking monetary compensation totaling approximately US$15 million. This legal action is based on Erin’s claim that it held a valid joint venture contract to develop the Piskanja boron property and, in spite of direct knowledge of Erin’s contractual rights to the property, the Serbian government in power at that time granted a concession to exploit these boron deposits to a third party.

The Court’s examination of Erin’s primary witnesses is now complete, with the testimony and examination of all secondary witnesses expected to take a few days to complete, once the Court reconvenes on May 20th.

As well, as previously reported, Erin is engaged in ongoing discussions with members of the Serbian Government and other key persons regarding a possible amicable settlement of this legal action.

Further information regarding this matter will be forthcoming as and when available.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Blake Fallis, General Manager
