Dutch Court rules mobile basestations can harm human health
Holland Created: 29 Mar 2021
A Dutch court has found that low levels of radiation from a mobile phone base station could potentially harm health.

In a judgement delivered on 18 December 2020 in the district Court of Gelderland, the judge found in favour of a plaintiff who opposed the construction of a 40-metre transmitter approximately 500 metres from his home that had been approved by the local council.

The judgement stated, ‘In the opinion of the court, considering all arguments, with reference to scientific literature, it cannot be ruled out that there are increased health risks even at a field strength lower than 1 V / m, and thus also in the plaintiff's case. The court therefore classifies the plaintiff as an interested party. The appeal is well-founded.’

Case number AWB - 19 _ 2184;
