President János Áder has asked the Constitutional Court for a review of an amendment proposal to a law on waste management approved by parliament last week.

According to the President’s Office, President Áder said he considered it unconstitutional that under a provision in the bill producers would be stripped of their ownership rights of their production and industrial waste without receiving compensation.

The president said the bill giving concession groups a discriminatory advantage was also unconstitutional. President Áder also voiced concerns over the bill not providing enough guarantees for cases of concession businesses winding up their operations, which he said threatened citizens’ constitutional rights to a healthy environment.
