Germany: Court postpones decision on diesel car ban

The Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig postponed its decision on whether to ban dirty diesel engines until February 27 with at least 200 people protesting outside the court house on Thursday. The hearing was held as some German states stood against lower court rulings to suggest driving bans for dirty diesel cars to be a measure to protect health. “We need a will from the court but also a... Еще will from the industry to drop the air emissions,” stated Jurgen Resch, DUH (German Environmental Aid) chef. «People really die earlier and get ill because of the diesel we got to act now,» added the members of Greenpeace, Marie Tieman, who was among the protesters outside the court building. If the appeal is rejected, cities will have to ban heavily polluting cars from driving.
