Shoot: Stop Toxic Threat Action in Hungary

GP0STPTVX
The operating permission of the red sludge reservoir at Almásfüzitő expired exactly one year ago. However, due to a legal loophole, the operations could continue. Greenpeace turned to the Office of the Prosecutor General in order to stop further transports of dangerous waste to Almásfüzitő.

Almásfüzitő is a small village 100 km away from Budapest, right next to the Danube. A local company is mixing hazardous waste into the red sludge reservoirs under the label of "composting". Hungarian authorities and courts refused the renewal of the operating permission for the company. However, the previous permission states it is valid until the next renewal enters into force, or a final judgement is not made. Greenpeace Hungary believes this is not a legal interpretation of the laws, and considers the permission to have been expired a year ago. The EU has also initiated an infringement procedure against Hungary because of this case.
