After the conditions for the continuation of the process of issuing the environmental permit to GIKIL were obtained, the request evaluation committee appointed by the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism initiated the necessary activities and the environmental permit to GIKIL should be issued as soon as possible.


We remind that GIKIL has submitted an application for an environmental permit to the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism on 2nd October, 2018 but the proceedings were interrupted due to procedural issues.

 

The obtaining of the environmental permit and the continuation of activities were preceded by the obtaining of a water permit in February 2019, while deadlines and activities are regularly monitored on the ground.

 

“In addition to the water act, the judgment of the Municipal Court in Lukavac dated May 17, 2019, created all the conditions for the continuation of the administrative procedure for evaluating the application for the environmental permit. At the moment, an expert committee appointed by the competent ministry is actively working on its part of the task, so we hope for a positive outcome as soon as possible, ”said Emra Halilovic, environment manager at GIKIL.
