Abstract

The ultimate act of the environmental law enforcement procedure in the Court is the execution of court rulings addressing environmental civil disputes. The Plaintiff sincerely hopes that the court's ruling will be effectively implemented, restoring environmental rights that have been harmed or polluted, as well as the rights of communities impacted by environmental damage and pollution. However, due to a variety of variables, recompense in the form of compensation and environmental restoration efforts may not be possible in some cases. The major invoice is about regulations guiding the execution procedure, which still refer to normal civil procedural statutes that have nothing to do with environmental civil problems. Due to the difficulty in obtaining information on the defendant's holdings, no assets or assets were confiscated as collateral during the execution of the verdict. Another stumbling block is the lack of clear legislation controlling the coordination of organizations involved in enforcing court rulings in environmental civil cases. Environmental law has unique features that make it important to make sure that the process for implementing court orders for compensation or environmental restoration is set up in a way that fits those features. This means that a special institution should be in charge of implementing environmental civil decisions.
