COURT DECISION ON FRACKING IN ROMANIA

Be warned that the court decision has been challenged in court and there are big chances that it does not stay the same. Yet a small victory for the time being.

“The citizens of Vaslui County had their first court win in the battle against shale gas exploitation via hydraulic fracturing.

At the end of last week, the Vaslui Court House issued the motivation of a decision made in December that ruled in favor of the local council of the commune Al. Vlahuta in their dispute with the Prefecture.

The local council of the commune challenged the decision of the Prefecture that canceled the decision of the local council to forbid fracking.

This is one of 14 communes that have issued such decisions. The decision of the court in this case is surprising because 10 communes have lost cases against the Prefecture.”
