'Changed for the third airport'
In the news in Hürriyet, Baran Bozoğlu, President of the Chamber of Environmental Engineers, said, "The legal basis of rent, talan has been completed," regarding the changes in the regulation. Bozoğlu said: “Before that all wetlands were one, there was only one wetland logic. The wetland does not have a national or neighborhood. Wetlands are not only water deposits, they are a whole connected with reeds and trees. With this regulation, they divide it into two. One is said to have 'national' and the other has 'local' significance. This is a very dangerous and crippling thing. The softest belly of the Third Airport is wetlands. For this project, money will be taken from international credit institutions. Since these organizations will pay attention to the wetland situation, the ministry is trying to dehumanize wetlands.
