Latvia wins court case vs. EU on allocation of emissions allowances
This case dates back to the end of 2006, and the national emissions plan for 2008-12 that Latvia submitted to the EU repeatedly, which was subsequently rejected.
Latvia then decided to petition a European court of law asking to overturn the EU's decision and won. EU then filed an appeal, and – as announced Thursday – lost.
Justice Ministry State Secretary Martins Lazdovskis commented that the October 3rd ruling is a "positive outcome for Latvia's environmental interests."
