Schwerin (dpa/mv) - The obligation of the controversial Climate Foundation MV to provide information to the press is again an issue before the district court in Schwerin today (1 p.m.). Following a default judgment at the end of April, the lawsuit brought by a journalist from the newspaper "Welt" is now being heard there for the second time. The court had ordered the climate foundation - for not attending - to release information to support the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The Foundation appealed against this.
According to a court spokesman, the foundation had already answered the questions after a penalty payment had been threatened in the meantime. Whether the answers given are sufficient from the point of view of the plaintiff is still open.
The Climate Foundation had already been obliged to provide information to the press in another case before the district court. The transparency platform “Ask the State” had complained here. This procedure is currently being appealed to the Higher Regional Court.
