FIE’s complaint in March 2013 to the UN Economic and Social Council was upheld (along with a similar complaint from a German member of Parliament, Sylvia Kotting-Uhl. The finding determined that the UK did not met its obligations under the Espoo Convention and is due to be ratified in Minsk on June 16th. Work must be suspended until the opportunity to comment has been provided.
