Kolin Group.

Ankara said a company that chopped down 6,000 valu­able olive trees in or­der to build a new power plant must obey a court rul­ing block­ing the con­struc­tion of the fa­cil­ity, re­ports said yes­ter­day. Turk­ish en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists were out­raged when se­cu­rity agents em­ployed by the Kolin Group last week moved in to fell the trees in de­fi­ance of lo­cal protests. How­ever Turkey’s ad­min­is­tra­tive court had al­ready blocked the con­struc­tion of the 510-megawatt coal-fired power plant at the olive grove in Yirca in the west of the coun­try. Its rul­ing, which was only pub­lished on Mon­day, made clear the ver­dict could not be ap­pealed and said there was no pub­lic in­ter­est in build­ing the power plant on the olive grove.

ter net loss widened to 10.8 mil­lion euros from 8.2 mil­lion euros in the same pe­riod last year. Brew­ery cus­tomers in Rus­sia re­duced spend­ing in the face of the coun­try’s de­te­ri­o­rat­ing beer mar­ket, while higher taxes also weak­ened Fri­go­glass’s re­sults. Sales rose 8 per­cent to 89.4 mil­lion euros, thanks largely to the company’s glass bot­tle business in Nige­ria, though de­pressed cooler sales are ex­pected to con­tinue in Europe for the rest of the year. In an ef­fort to cut costs, Fri­go­glass has said it will close its Turk­ish plant by the end of the year to cut costs. It is also ex­plor­ing sev­eral op­tions for its glass op­er­a­tions. and abroad, the event forms part of Global En­trepreneur­ship Week (Novem­ber 15-21), and will take place at 28 Karaiskaki Street in down­town Psyrri, start­ing at 5 p.m.
