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.
The Court of Appeals sent the case back to the Metropolitan Court because the court of first instance was wrong in defining the expert opinions regarding the re-start of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant’s 2nd block were not public data. The Court of Appeals ruled that indeed they were public data, but it was possible that they were to be considered as trade secrets or fell under copyright laws. This however needed to be decided by the court of first instance in a re-trial.
