Upon learning from the media that a dead animals landfill is located in the vicinity of Kovilovo and that, even after the reports, the competent inspection has not reacted for a month, the Protector of Citizens instigated own-initiative investigation to control work legality and regularity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management.

Having in mind the possibility of health and environmental peril to citizens and the environment, the Protector of Citizens requests the competent Ministry to notify him on all undertaken activities in the case and to submit the relevant documentation as soon as possible, no later than 15 days.
