Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Hel­las Gold and four unions rep­re­sent­ing work­ers at the Halkidiki mines it man­ages on be­half of Cana­dian gi­ant El­do­rado took le­gal ac­tion yesterday against the re­cent min­is­te­rial de­ci­sion that led to the sus­pen­sion of work at the sites. Hel­las Gold ar­gues in the com­plaint filed at the Coun­cil of State that the de­ci­sion taken on Au­gust 19 by then energy min­is­ter Panos Sk­ourletis to sus­pend the tech­ni­cal study for the mines’ pro­cess­ing plant went against the Greek Con­sti­tu­tion. The com­pany says the Greek gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to put the pro­ject on ice vi­o­lated the prin­ci­ples of good ad­min­is­tra­tion and the sep­a­ra­tion of the ju­di­cial and ex­ec­u­tive pow­ers. The firm and the unions, which rep­re­sent some 2,000 min­ers, ar­gue that Sk­ourletis’s de­ci­sion should be sus­pended, al­low­ing work at the Sk­ouries and Olympiada sites to con­tinue.
