Comment on the submission of the environment bill to Parliament

Comment by Ioli Christopoulou to the online version of TO VIMA and journalist Machie Tratsa on the submission of the draft environment law to the Hellenic Parliament by the Ministry of Environment and Energy.

Specifically she mentioned that significant changes are noted in the revised text based on the comments submitted to the public consultation. However, several improvements are needed in order to ensure environmental protection and implementation of the provisions. She also highlighted that the revised bill includes many new provisions that had not been submitted to public consultation. This strengthens the call for the bill to be discussed when the Parliament returns to relatively normal working procedures rather than under the restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 crisis.

The article was published in Greek on the online version of TO VIMA on 25.04.2020 under the title “Environmental draft law: Big hotels in the center of Athens”:
