LMP Wants Stricter Punishment for Environmental Pollution

2018.12.07.

The green opposition LMP will submit an amendment proposal in order to increase punishment on companies that pollute the environment, party MP Péter Ungár said.

All job creation support and other benefits should be withdrawn from companies that pollute the environment and if their ownership structure is non-transparent, then the last known owner should be held accountable, Ungár told a press conference.

A deterioration in nature protection infrastructure is among the reasons for the current situation, he said. Ungár added that contrary to the government’s claims, the principle that those responsible for environmental pollution should pay for recovery had failed and “polluting companies are getting paid” instead.
