Delay in the “Nuclear Trial”

The Metropolitan Court did not deliver its decision on appeal today in the lawsuit between Energy Club and the National Atomic Energy Agency’s Nuclear Safety Directorate (NAEA-NSD). The public still does not have access to the information on the expert opinions on the damage reduction process of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant.

Respondent NAEA-NSD submitted its motion to the court only yesterday, one day before the hearing, and sent it to the lawyer of Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) only today as well.

The court held the hearing but did not want to deliver final decision without reviewing respondent’s motion.

Next hearing is scheduled on April 20, 2006, 1 pm. Location: II. District, Fekete Sas street 3. Room Nr.VIII.
