Czech Transport Ministry Seeks to Undermine Highway Review Process

So, the Ministry of Transport is readying a new law that would sweep away these delays. It would shorten highway approval processes, and limit who can object to approvals. Environmental groups protest that the law would be unconstitutional and violate the UN Declaration of Human Rights. They say that if their right to appeal through legal means is restricted, they will protect the public interest rights more directly.
