Following the press reports of the meeting today of the Municipal Council in Melendugno which has as its object the adoption of a resolution that calls on the Puglia Region to take position against the proposed construction of a gas pipeline by TAP, we are disappointed that TAP is the only party that has not been invited to represent the project.
Lecce - Following the press reports of the meeting today of the Municipal Council in Melendugno which has as its object the adoption of a resolution that calls on the Puglia Region to take position against the proposed construction of a gas pipeline by TAP, we are disappointed that TAP is the only party that has not been invited to represent the project.  
 
TAP has repeatedly requested to meet with the administration of Melendugno, to explain the project and the facts in detail. For reasons which are not clear to TAP, the Melendugno council declines to give TAP the opportunity to do participate in its meetings in a fair, equal and transparent way. 
We believe that citizens have the right to receive timely, transparent and complete information about the project and therefore, we renew our availability to organize a meeting with the administration of public presentation and analysis on the project, using procedures that ensure the plurality of positions and the fairness of a transparent and constructive dialogue.
