The ecological association “Majski cvet” received a response from the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Environmental Protection of HNC to the submitted request stating that the Register of Protected Areas of Nature has not been established at the Federation or HNC level, which is why they cannot act upon the request.
However, the competent Ministry in its response confirms that the site of the Buna canals – the Neretva River, which was declared a protected part of nature in the Institute for the Protection of Natural Monuments of FBiH in 1970, continues to exist as a protected area, and as such enjoys protection prescribed by the provisions of the Nature Protection Act HNŽ-K.
“The response of the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Environmental Protection HNŽ-K to our request for entry of Buna canals in the register of protected parts of nature of Herzegovina-Neretva County additionally confirmed the fact that Buna canals are a protected part of nature and that construction of SHPPs on that site is not allowed. So far, we have proved that numerous omissions were made in the process of building SHPPs on the Buna canals, and this is just another confirmation that our requests are justified, “says Oliver Arapović, on behalf of the environmental association” May Flower “.
We remind you Department of Urbanism The City of Mostar has again issued a decision rejecting the investor’s request for the issuance of urban consent for the construction of SHPPs “Buna 1” and “Buna 2”, based on the fact that the environmental association “Majski cvet” submitted the necessary documentation and a petition with 5,000 signatures against construction of these two SHPPs. Although the Cantonal Court in Sarajevo issued a verdict annulling the environmental permit issued by the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism for the construction of two SHPPs on the Buna canals, the investor again submitted a request to the Federal Ministry for the issuance of a permit.
“Nevertheless, we continue our struggle and hope that the Federal Ministry will be guided by the facts so far when issuing the permit. We will use all legal remedies in achieving our goal – we will not stop until the construction of SHPPs on the Buna canals, a natural monument, is banned “, according to the environmental association” May Flower “.
