Ep33 카지노a to probe dublin asbestos dumping, EU officials say

In what he described as a “revolting and criminal act”, the EU Commission has announced that the illegal dumping of thousands of tonnes of asbestos fibres would be probed in a Brussels court, EU officials said.

In response to a parliamentary question from MEPs on Friday, EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said that the dumping had taken place as the country was struggling to recover from the devastating impact of the European Union’s financial crisis.

“To put it bluntly, there were millions of tonnes of asbestos fibres which were dumped in Ireland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Malta, Montenegro, Cyprus, Cyprus, Macedonia, Montenegro, Hungary, Kosovo, Romania,” Juncker said.

In a statement, the European Commission said that in 2013 the EU had agreed to a European ban on asbestos fibres in several industrial sites, with Germany the biggest importer. “However, EU Member States are not obliged to fulfil EU requirements, and in order for these EU standards to apply to all source countries the Council must come up with a general framework, including general guidelines on the disposal of these toxic substances and regulations setting out acceptable storage conditions,” it said.

The EU’s executive branch will investigate whether other Member States acted in the same way.
