  • EU slammed for lack of respect for rule of law on environmental justice (European Environmental Bureau - EEB)
    A day after European Commission President Juncker declared the rule of law to be one of three principles that must anchor the European Union in his State of the Union address, the EU has been heavily criticised for its failure to accept an international panel’s ruling that it is not ensuring adequate access to justice for its citizens at EU level.
