Czech media CTK reported that the Czech Republic has withdrawn its action before the Court of Justice of the European Union because Poland fulfilled the agreed condition and sent EUR 45 million as financial compensation for the Turów lignite mine in Poland. The amount of EUR 35 million will go to the Liberec region & EUR 10 million will belong to the Czech state.The Czech Republic turned to the EU court last February after the Polish authorities approved an extension of mining in the mine until 2026. According to the Czech government, this happened without a sufficient assessment of the impact of further work on the environment, which is the opinion of the European Commission. Poland rejected the objections of Prague and Brussels. Last May, the court ordered Poland to end work on the mine until a final verdict was issued. Because Warsaw refused to comply and mining continued, the court fined Poland half a million euros a day.The Turów mine supplies coal to a nearby power plant. According to the Polish side, this is necessary to ensure the country's energy security. Residents of border municipalities on the Czech side of the border point out that groundwater is declining in the area due to mining, and they also complain about noise and dust pollution.
