It is a remarkable process: The Federal court, in a recent ruling, the Federal office for the environment shall carry out his duties insufficiently true. . The control of the Federal authority is the responsibility of the judges, but the Federal Council and the Parliament. Further, the Federal office itself was not before the court. In that case, aerial opponents, and the mobile telephony providers, Sunrise in Lausanne, met.
The judgment is easily summarized: The Federal judge allow the Sunrise, on a high-rise building in the Canton of Thurgau a mobile radio system upgrade. The opponents wanted to prevent this and complained through all instances. Exceptionally, however, is the multi-page justification of the decision. The Federal all the way down.
Ironically, the Supreme Arbiter should have to be exercised according to the Federal court, your task is to little to seriously. The judges refer to the Canton of Schwyz. The cantonal authorities joined in controls in 8 of 14 cases, broadcasting equipment, which denied the building permit, miss. Despite such troubling cases, the Federal office is no longer checked in years, whether the control systems of the mobile phone antennas are still suitable for use.
Therefore, there is now criminal responsibilities by the Federal court. The office needs to test whether 18'500 antennas comply with the regulations and the legal radiation limits. Amtsdirektion and the competent head of Department, Simonetta Sommaruga would do well, in addition to regular routine inspections introduce.
The population must be able to rely on the fact that the authorities look carefully. The resistance to the new mobile technology 5G is growing. The opponents collect the signatures, so that the voting public has the last word on the ongoing construction of the modern network. Trust in a thorough supervision by the Federal government is missing the Switzerland runs the risk that the people's initiative is believed to 5G. As an export-oriented economy, we cannot afford to be in the digitization suspended.
