Question for written answer E-003447-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nikolaos Chountis (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Financial correction to the contribution for the Grammatiko landfill site
 Answer in writing 

A European Commission representative told the Committee on Petitions (21 March 2018 — Petition No 0573/2011 by Konstantinos Papadigenopoulos) that the process for the Grammatiko landfill has been completed and that a full refund of the funds is requested.

On 14 January 2015 a proposal was sent to the Greek authorities for a 100% financial correction to the financial contribution from the Cohesion Fund, because the project was not functional and there were also environmental reasons.

In their letter of March 2015, the Greek authorities did not accept the European Commission’s proposals and produced additional documents and information on the project progress with regard to the pending issues. The Commission deems that the project remains incomplete and non-functional.

We have prepared, and will send in the following days, another letter to the Greek authorities, requesting a 100% financial correction to the contribution made by the Cohesion Fund ’(1).

In view of the fact that there is still an official Region of Attica sign on the landfill site indicating that the project is co-funded by the European Union;

In view of the fact that the 100% financial correction also applies to associated projects (e.g. roads for access to the site), even if those are funded by other Structural Funds;

Can the Commission say:
Does it intend to request the immediate removal of the misleading sign?
Which are the associated projects for which a 100% financial correction has been requested?
