EU readies to withhold Polish funds over mine

The European Commission is getting ready to withhold funds to Poland for refusing to pay a €500,000-per-day fine for failing to comply with an EU ruling to shut down its Turow lignite mine due to cross-border pollution, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday. The EU executive has sent three requests for payments. But Poland hopes to reach a deal with the Czech Republic that would end current procedures.
