Open letter to European Commission due to the planned restriction on lead ammunition: REACH cannot be applied to hunters’ use of lead gunshots over wetlands

However, the REACH Regulation applies only to commercial operators to ensure that chemicals do not adversely affect human health or the environment.

Czech MEPs welcomed the lawsuit and have been among those who convinced the EU executive to react vigorously to the measures.

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
