Czech Republic will sue Poland over coal mine

23 Feb 2021

The Czech government agreed Monday to sue Poland in the Court of Justice of the EU over alleged violations of water, environmental and impact assessment rules at the Turów lignite mine near the border between the two countries.
 
It will be filed "at the turn of February and March" and will ask the court to stop mining activities while the lawsuit proceeds.
 
In December, the European Commission agreed that Poland had breached EU permitting and environmental procedures regarding transparency and judicial review, but called environmental claims over air pollution and imperiled groundwater supply "unfounded ... based on the evidence and arguments."
