Greenpeace: 100 hectares of forest illegally logged in Romania

Almost 100 hectares of forests in Romania’s Cindrel Mountains have been illegally logged, Greenpeace Romania said, quoted by Agerpres. Meanwhile, the Sibiu Forests Department and the Brasov Forestry Guard are ignoring these violations of the Forests Code, the organization added.
