Poland broke EU law by logging in ancient forest: court

Luxembourg (AFP) – Poland’s rightwing government broke the law by logging in one of Europe’s last primeval forests, a UNESCO world heritage site, the European Union’s top court ruled Tuesday.

“The forest management operations concerning the Puszcza Bialowieska Natura 2000 site that have been undertaken by Poland infringe EU law,” the European Court of Justice said in a statement.
