Off-shore drilling approval in southern Italy denounced


(ANSA) - Foggia, August 30 - Local officials and politicians
denounced Italy's environment minister Thursday for approving
off-shore petrol exploration near the Tremiti islands' marine
reserve in the southern Italian region of Puglia.
"This is the umpteenth proof of worrying inattention by the
(state) toward the territory, stripped of any value other than
those permeated by squalid commodification," the mayor of the
Tremiti islands, Antonio Fentini, said in a written statement in
which he vowed to fight the decision.
Italian environment minister Corrado Clini gave his
approval in the last few days to a prospecting proposal by the
Irish company Petrolceltic, Fentini learned.
Euro-deputy Salvatore Tatarella and Puglia's regional head
for the centre-right People of Freedom party, Rocco Palese, also
condemned the approval.
