Bulgaria's eco activists from Ekoglasnost sent a letter to the President of the European Commission demanding the construction of the Belene Nuke to be stopped immediately.

The eco activists' movement claim the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency has ascertained 140 normative breaches in the project for the Belene NPP. They also claim the Council of Ministers doesn't tell the Supreme Administrative Court the whole truth about Belene.

The main breach is the non-assessment of the radioactive waste and the spent nuclear fuel and their management, the Ekoglasnost members believe.

The Nuclear Regulatory Agency ascertained that the last phase of management of the spent nuclear fuel is missing in the project.

Ekoglasnost demand from President of the EC Jose Manuel Barroso another suspension of the Belene NPP project in order to ensure full implementation of the European norms and harmonization of Bulgaria's laws for nuclear safety.
