MEPs back Bulgarian environmentalists
At its last session in the current mandate the Petitions Committee of the European Parliament reviewed petitions regarding Natura 2000 in Bulgaria that had been submitted by Bulgarian citizens. The committee decided to send an insistent letter to EU Commissioner for Environment Stavros Dimas demanding no further delay in punitive procedures on the most urgent and severe cases. Besides, the Petitions Committee will ask the European Ombudsman to investigate the European Commission for its passive stance on offences in Bulgaria and for its slow reaction.
