Greece held to comply with Case C-119/02 and Case C-166/04

In the first case, Greece was condemned for violating the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive by not taking the measures necessary for the installation of a collecting system for urban waste water and for not subjecting waste water to a strict treatment.

In the second case, the Court held that by failing to take all the measures necessary for establishing and implementing a comprehensive legal regime capable of ensuring the protection of wild birds in the Messolongi lagoon, Greece had failed to fulfil its obligations under the
Wild Birds Directive.
