Quarrying in Besparmak continues to damage environment

7 May 2016

Uncontrolled quarrying in the Besparmak mountains over the past decades has taken its toll of the mountain range.

According to Turkish Cypriot daily Diyalog, an unnamed European official told the paper that many complaints had been made to the EU about the environmental damage to Besparmak and pointed out that if the same complaints about an environmental catastrophe had been made in an EU country, severe penalties would have been applied.
