Members approved an amendment to the Mining Act, strengthens the rights of the owners


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Lawmakers on Wednesday approved 76 votes in the final reading of an amendment to the Mining Act, which aims to strengthen the rights of property owners in areas where coal is mined. Draft is repealed section called expropriation.

To amend the Act on the Protection and Use of Mineral Resources prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT). Based on the provisions of the coalition agreement, the government agreed that even in the composition of the ODS, TOP 09 and Public Affairs. The Ministry had to prepare an amendment, which "removes the possibility of expropriation and other restrictions of property rights of property owners in the mining areas."

Ministry of Industry and Trade expects that by 2015 the possible process for coal mining limits in northern Bohemia could depend entirely on the agreement of the landowners, under which the coal is located, and mining companies.By 2014, the state has to break the limits considered.

The proposal is in the middle of a passionate debate ensued, in which he joined the Prime Minister Petr Necas (ODS). "It echoes here quite a fiery personal battle. Need all the calm discussion. Demagoguery that is done here, when comparing the expropriation paragraphs from one Act with sections in a statute, it is not necessary," said the Prime Minister.

Necas alluded to expropriation law that Deputies discussed only a few minutes before the Mining Act, which allows for faster and cheaper expropriation of plots for construction traffic and technical infrastructure. In it goes by the Prime Minister of expropriation in the public interest: "On the contrary, the Mining Act for the implementation of the business plan of a business entity. This is a completely different situation."

The proposed change is to solve governing conflict of interest between the protection of private property and exploitation of mineral resources. "Submitted solution significantly enhances the protection of the rights of property owners potentially affected by mining minerals reserved," the ministry said.

Under current legislation, while mining companies have a duty to the authorities, companies and people agree. But if such an agreement is not reached and for the exclusive use of bearings there is an overriding public interest, pursuant to the Act may become problematic expropriate property, their owners and miners to pay out of the way.

The law now goes to the Senate.
