PARIS (Reuters) – A planned “ecoside” law would deliberately damage France’s environment punishable by up to 10 years in prison, government ministers said in remarks on Sunday.
The law was a recommendation of the Citizens’ Convention on Climate Change, drafted by the government a year ago, which brought together one and a half hundred members of the French population to discuss the environment.
Justice Minister Eric Dupont-Mauritius and Minister for Environmental Transfer Justice have been fined 4.5 million euros (3 5.3 million) or deliberately “ecoside” for violating “environmental laws”. Approved. Barbara Pompei told the JDD weekly.
