Invitation to the „nuclear trial” on appeal

The Appellate Court hearing in the lawsuit against the National Atomic Energy Agency’s Nuclear Safety Directorate will be held on September 8, 2005, Thursday, from 12.30.pm.

HCLU’s legal aid service is representing the Energie Club in the lawsuit against National Atomic Energy Agency’s Nuclear Safety Directorate (NAEA-NSD).

The court of first instance ruled against our client in April this year. The Metropolitan Court concluded that NAEA-NSD did not have a duty to disclose the data in question, since such data were considered to be related to its own decision-making process and could not be deemed as data of public interest.

Plaintiffs, i.e the civil organizations Energie Club, HCLU, Védegylet, Greenpeace, Reflex, E-misszió, HCM, ZöFi, brought an appeal against the ruling of the Metropolitan Court. Appellants demanded that the court determine that the exhibits of the petition for authorizing the reactivation of the 2nd unit of the Paks Nuclear Plant constituted data of public interest, and that NAEA-NSD be obligated by the court to disclose such data.

The first hearing on appeal will take place: September 8, 2005, Thursday 12.30.pm Metropolitan Appellate Court (Fekete Sas u. 3.) room Nr. V.
