Access to Justice – After hearing the Court of Justice of the EU, the Belgian Constitutional Court annulled a number of permits that were delivered by a Decree from the Walloon Parliament, as they were not considered as “specific legislative act” according to Article 1(5) of the EIA Directive (85/337) – reflecting Article 2, para. 2, of the Aarhus Convention – that can be exempted from full judicial review.
