Lawsuit threatens to shut down Friends of the Earth Croatia

More than a decade into a campaign to save a vast, unspoilt natural area behind Dubrovnik from a hugely unpopular – and illegal – golf resort, the developers have pressed the red button and taken Zelena akcija/Friends of the Earth Croatia to court.

As well as suing the Croatian government for €500 million, the Netherlands-based Elitech and their Croatian daughter company Razvoj golf d.o.o. are seeking around 200,000 Kuna (around €30,000) in damages from Zelena akcija/Friends of the Earth Croatia – an amount that could force the organisation to close down.
