The Center for Strategic Cases will file a lawsuit with a request to postpone the execution of the decision against the Decision on Municipal Environmental Permit 04 Nr. 352 / 10-151458 / 20, with which the Municipality of Prishtina has allowed the realization of the project “Adventure Park” in Gërmi.
According to the Institute for Nature Protection, this location is the richest and most important biodiversity area in the Germia Protected Landscape. Also, in this area are the oldest and most preserved beech forests in Kosovo.
GLPS and Active Citizens consider that this decision is contrary to applicable laws.
“In this case, the Municipality has acted outside the authorizations given by the Administrative Instruction for issuing the Municipal Environmental Permit, and has acted contrary to the procedures provided for this category of projects in the Law on Environmental Impact. On the other hand, the Ministry of Economy and Environment has also not correctly assessed the request of the Municipality and according to the legal requirements / procedures, as defined by the Law on Environmental Impact. Thus, the Municipality of Prishtina and the Ministry of Economy and Environment have avoided legal requirements and public involvement in decision-making for an important project for citizens and nature. In the lawsuit, GLPS and Active Citizens request from the Basic Court in Prishtina, the Department for Administrative Affairs to postpone the execution of the decision of the Municipality of Prishtina until the merits of the case and finally to annul the decision of the Municipality of Prishtina “, says the Institute for Protection of Nature.
