Overall comment

Overall comment
this case might not fulfill our criteria: it actually concerns a pipeline project, which however also includes railways and overland pipelines and, in its context several land confiscations have taken place. (2017) There was an EIA but there are people and groups that does not accept the result because it did not include CSOs and civilian experts.
