The investigation was triggered by the excavation of sand dunes on the southern coast of the Bulgarian city of Nesebar, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.
According to the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA), experts from the Regional Inspectorate for Environment and Water (RIEW) have conducted inspections on the southern coast of the Nesebar Protected Area.
It was determined that a trench about 1 meter deep had been dug along the dirt road to the beach and that the trench ran without entering the sheltered ‘dunes’.
RIEW reported that the trench did not affect the protected area but did cause landscape disturbance.
It was noted in the examinations that the people who conducted the excavations have not yet been found, and that a joint inspection will be conducted with other competent authorities to initiate administrative and criminal prosecutions, including procedures for correcting the damage caused by the excavations. .
The Ministry of Tourism stated that until the situation becomes clear, an investigation will be conducted regarding reports of the destruction of sand dunes by working in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior and other institutions.
