An Estonian court has opted not to initate proceedings after a group of Estonian farmers and rural businesses resorted to it over the deportation of Ukrainian workers who had violated quarantine rules.
On Thursday, ERR News wrote that the Health Board had found 46 instances of quarantining violations among agricultural workers flown into the country on a special flight conducted by the Estonian Chamber of Agriculture and Commerce (EPKK) at the end of last month.
The enterprises, Nopri Talumeierei - a dairy farm - Juhani puukool and Hobulased, along with MTÜ Loreta, which makes wooden buildings, took the deportation to court but did not find their actions fruitful.
Tiit Niilo, owner of Nopri Talumeierei, said he will not appeal the court's decision.
The EPKK also declined to represent the farms in court, though it expressed regret over the situation.
