A three-member jury of Supreme Administrative Court has ruled out as inadmissible the claim of a Bulgarian environmentalist movement against the construction of Belene nuclear site.

The magistrates concluded that the government had actually adopted no decision on April 2004 to launch the construction of the nuclear unit that was argued by the environmental organisation "Ecoglasnost".

The ruling can be appealed at a five-member jury within seven days.

The construction works of Bulgaria's second nuclear plant was re-launched following a political decision, the government spokesperson Dimitar Tsonev commented on Monday. He pointed out that numerous procedures and tenders on the selection of a nuclear unit were still ahead to be decided.

At a press conference on Monday environmentalists claimed that the future-to-be plant will rise on a seismically active land and called on the government to back up its decision of Belene with argumentation on the economic and environmental advantages of the project as located at Belene.
