In Slovakia, Za matku Zem is continuously pushing for a new Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process for Mochovce NPP 3,4, to stop the on-going construction.
A complaint to the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee has been made about Mochovce 3/4 by Slovakia (Ref. ACCC/C/2009/41) - On 1 July 2009 Global 2000/Friends of the Earth Austria, in collaboration with Friends of the Earth Europe (FoEE), Greenpeace Slovakia and International, ZA MATKU ZEM and VIA IURIS, and with the legal support of Oekobuero, submitted a communication to the Committee alleging a failure by Slovakia to comply with its obligations under article 6 of the Convention.
On October 10th 2010 the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee published draft findings regarding the communication ACCC/C/2009/41. The outcome of the findings is that concerning the change in building permits for construction of Strategic Energy, Slovak legislation does not confer the right of the public in a timely and effective way to express themselves. This is in contravention of Article 6, paragraph 4 of the Aarhus Convention.
