People Living in Sofia to Join Collective Case Against The Municipality Until 1 October

Until October 1, everyone who lives, works or studies in Sofia, can join the collective case against the municipality for the dirty air. The case was started last spring by the organizations "Save Sofia", "For the Earth - Access to Justice", Association "Diabetes Type 2", Center for Independent Living, lawyers Dimo Gospodinov, Hristo Hristev and Ivan Velov.

They joined together as the "Group for Clean Air".

The demands of the group are to establish the inactivity of the Sofia Municipality in the period 2015-2017 and to take measures to compensate for the damaged collective interest.

The lawyers of the municipality have asked the court not to proceed since they consider the claim to be unclear because it speaks of collective and individual interest that is both damaged and endangered. The "Group for clean air" then created a special site for the case - in order to spread the cause.

At today's hearing, the Court found the claims are fully acceptable and determined and the team had the capacity to conduct the case.

Citizens who want to support the case but who do not join in the administrative way can do so by joining the campaign to raise funds to cover the initial costs.
