NGOs to be cut off environmental permit process - report

Poland's Environment Ministry is preparing amendments to the environment protection laws that would effectively cut off civic movements and environmental NGOs from participation in the processes of issuing environmental permits, the daily Gazeta Wyborcza writes, citing documents dated November 14 and sent to the PM's Chancellery.

Environment Minister Jan Szyszko denies conducting any such works.

The drafts published online by Greenpeace Polska state that only associations (not foundations) that have existed for at least a year, are funded solely by its members' contributions and have at least five members with relevant education among its management can participate in the environmental permit process.

This rules out any NGOs that have ever obtained a subsidy from a local government, EU or other funds. No organization in Poland meets these criteria, activists say.
