EU frowns on classification of Paks upgrade documents, says MEP of the Dialogue for Hungary
Budapest, February 26 (MTI) – According to the European Commission, Hungary’s classifying documents concerning the Paks upgrade project is not compatible with community law, Benedek Jávor, MEP of the Dialogue for Hungary (PM) party, said on Friday.
Hungary’s parliament adopted a law last year, under which information on the Paks project in general would be treated as confidential, without specifying the data to be classified, he noted.
Jávor insisted that the law was also in conflict with the Hungarian constitution and called on the government to amend it without delay. He also noted, however, that negotiations between the Commission and the Hungarian government were under way, and Hungary had made a pledge for an amendment.
