Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Euro­pean Court of Jus­tice is to­mor­row to start hear­ing the case re­lat­ing to Greece’s long­stand­ing plans to di­vert the coun­try’s sec­ond-largest river, the Ach­e­loos, from the west­ern part of the main­land to the heav­ily farmed Plain of Thes­saly. The Coun­cil of State, the coun­try’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court, has asked the Stras­bourg-based ECJ to of­fer its opin­ion on whether the gov­ern­ment’s plans are con­sis­tent with Euro­pean Union leg­is­la­tion.
