AJK govt fails to establish environmental tribunal despite passage of law.

MUZAFFARABAD -- The AJK government has still to establish environmental tribunal to regulate the issues hazarding environment despite the passage of law last year from the legislative Assembly in this regards.

The Legislative Assembly had passed an Environmental Act 2014 last year to protect the nature in the region under which, a tribunal had to be established to look into the controversial matters and decide the issues relating to environment.

In the absence of such a body, there has been no check on the measures harming the natural climate and the implementation of laws related to the protection of environment and many organizations and individuals have been constantly damaging the environment.
