A five-member panel of the Supreme Administrative Court will hear the case on the Cabinet's decision on Kozloduy Nuclear Units 3 and 4 at an open meeting February 28. The court's decision, to be announced within thirty days, will be final and not subject to appeal.

At the beginning of January, a three-member panel of the Supreme Administrative Court revoked the Cabinet's decision, which approved additional information on the Energy chapter of the acquis. By that additional information, Bulgaria undertook to close Kozloduy Units 3 and 4 units in 2006 in exchange for a commitment to a new technical expert inspection or peer review of the two reactors' safety.

The court acted upon a request by leftist MPs, led by Lyuben Kornezov.

The Cabinet filed three appeals against the decision of the Court ten days ago - on the part of the Cabinet, the Foreign Minister, Euro-integration Minister and Energy Minister. The government claimed that the case did not have to be reviewed by the court since the acts regarding the foreign policy were not under judicial control.
