Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Phil Bennion
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Mismanagement in Limassol, Pentakomo province, Cyprus

The Directorate of Control of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works of the Republic of Cyprus has discovered significant deviations from contractual obligations in the construction and operation of the integrated solid waste management facility in Limassol, including reports of illegal landfilling. Its findings suggest that the operation of the site is a threat to the environment and to public health.

According to recent reports in the Cypriot media, the Directorate of Control has been trying to remedy the situation for over a year now.

Is the European Union on the verge of submitting a complaint against Cyprus regarding the illegal and discriminatory practices that occur at the facility?

Why was the project awarded financial assistance from the EU Cohesion Fund despite it being in contravention of the technical specifications of the tender? What is the impact of the aforementioned practices on competition and the legality of the contract?

What measures does the Commission intend to take resolve the major waste management issue in Cyprus?
