The director of the Onetik cheese factory in Macaye sued for pollution

The director of a Basque company, located in Macaye, is determined for a case of pollution. The boss of the cooperative specializing in Onetik cheeses was presented to the Bayonne prosecutor’s office this Wednesday, June 22, 2022. He was initially summoned before the gendarmes. Justice accuses him, as manager of the company, of pollution on the river “La Joyeuse”. It seems that it is the company’s purification system that is failing.

A company already in the crosshairs of justice

The company had already been worried in 2012 and sentenced to a fine of 10,000 euros for facts of the same nature. In 2021, it was the fishermen who alerted the justice system once again. This Wednesday, the public prosecutor asked the judge to place the director under judicial review.
