Lázár: Government initiated EC investigation over Paks II

Parliament

The Hungarian government asked the European Commission to investigate suspicion of unlawful use of state subsidies in relation to the expansion of Hungary’s sole nuclear power plant Paks, Cabinet Chief János Lázár reportedly told journalists today during his weekly regular press conference.

Online news portal origo.hu reported that Lázár said he hopes that the European Commission will make an “unbiased decision”, even if there are “opposition MPs in Hungary who would be happy if the investment never took place, thus new jobs would not be created.

It was reported earlier that the investigation was launched on May 22 of this year and the Hungarian government has been informed about the action.
