It is scandalous: The romanian appeals court declared the building permission of the Jiu hydroelectric plant void several times, lately in December. However, the state energy provider Hidroelectrica decided to ignore the court decision and continues the construction works. Since Hidroelectrica has too many powerful allies, no consequences are expected for the moment. There are some indications that, in addition to the state building supervision, the public prosecutor's office, the police and the Romanian environmental guard are also on the side of the energy supplier. Nevertheless, the resistance of the population against the reservoir dam project increases. EuroNatur will continue to support the romanian environmentalist Calin Dejeu and his numerous contributors fighting for the Carpathian wild river.
