Trial on the expert opinions on the damage reduction in Paks

During the breakdown of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant in 2003, the heating system was damaged. Parts of the system have still not been removed. The Energie Club, represented by HCLU’s legal aid service, has filed an action against National Atomic Energy Agency’s Nuclear Safety Directorate (NAEA-NSD) for the disclosure of data of public interest.

HCLU’s legal aid service is representing Energie Club in the lawsuit against NAEA-NSD.

Energie Club sued because NAEA-NSD withheld the documentation regarding the details of the damage reduction process. As a consequence, the public did not have an opportunity to gain information about the expert opinions and risk assessment with respect to the removal of damaged parts of the heating system.

The hearing will take place: on September 14, 2005, Wednesday 10 am, in Metropolitan Court (1055 Budapest, Markó u. 27.) room 317.
