Cabinet has decided that an unlicensed asphalt unit in Tseri industrial area will immediately suspend operation after a long-standing demand by nearby residents whose health is in danger.
This is what state radio said early on Wednesday, adding that the Cabinet took the decision during their last session.
It comes shortly after the online signing of a petition calling for the unit’s suspension of operations began. This was the latest initiative of the Parents Association of Dhali Elementary Schools.
Six thousand residents of nearby Dhali area have been fighting for six years for their right to breathe fresh air while the industrial unit continues to operate without a license.
The children of the nearby elementary schools and kindergarten are breathing every day harmful substances which affect their quality of life.
