Facebook posting by Agent Green:
“Instead of speeding up the process to strictly protect the last virgin forests, Romanian State plans to decriminalize planned logging in such forests.
The forest crime law is currently under revision following influence by forest mafia whose lobbyists asked last week in the Parliament to decriminalize many forest crimes and to reduce fines to 10% of the current value.
The draft promoted by the Forest Ministry to be sent to Parliament, so far decriminalizes approval of logging in virgin forests. At the same time there is no fine for actually logging in virgin forests.
Agent Green calls on Ministry for Forests and Water to demand the Parliament to criminalize both, approval and logging of virgin forests with sanctions and prison.”
