NPP Employee Suspects Nuclear Fuel Fraud
14 July 2008, Monday

There is a possibility that a corruption scheme for the supply of nuclear fuel was created at the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) "Kozloduy", according to statements made before Darik radio by Georgi Kotev.

Kotev is an employee of the NPP and had initially made his accusations through a popular video clips Internet site.

According to the NPP employee beginning in 2004, "Kozloduy" might have been importing recycled fuel instead of new one and the NPP's top management has been personally profiting from the price difference.

The two are not mutually exclusive. You can have both. A win-win situation. In the face of a nuclear disaster, what good is money going to do you? Slim to none.
