“We will read the Opinion of the Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union in detail. However, I can already state that Poland will adhere to the final judgement of the Court regarding the Białowieża Forest”, Minister Henryk Kowalczyk added.
“The Białowieża Forest is an exceptionally valuable area for Poland, and all activities to date have been undertaken with its preservation in the best possible condition for present and future generations in mind” Minister Kowalczyk emphasised.
Today's opinion of the Advocate General of the CJEU is not legally binding. The judgement of the EU Court of Justice regarding the Białowieża Forest is expected to be handed down in April this year.
