In the context of the correspondences between Habi Center for Environmental Rights and The Environmental Affairs Agency (EAA) regarding the environmental and human rights violations committed by cement companies that use coal, Habi received another response from the EAA to the demands sent in 5th May 2016. The EAA’s response reveals the non-possibility of publishing the content of environmental impact assessment studies of these companies and that the executive summary of these studies will be published on the internet in addition to the dates of consultation sessions?!    

Although the EAA’s response does not minimally respond to Habi’s demands and seems as getting around these demands – the matter which might lead Habi to take immediate legal steps towards this response – yet Habi decided to continue in the ongoing dialogue with the EAA to build confidence bridges with them. 

Today Habi sends letter to the EAA assuring its before-sent demands regarding the necessity of publishing the names of the companies that actually started using coal on EAA website in addition to publishing EIA studies or at least their executive summaries, the minutes of hearing sessions of these companies, the names of companies that will use the coal in future, and finally oblige these companies to publish the previously mentioned information on their websites.
