LEO LT can break European law - Brussels

Friday, April 25, 2008

Vilnius, Apr 22 (ELTA) - The European Commission has confirmed that LEO LT can break the European law and has dismissed the extension of the operation of Ignalina nuclear power plant. It has been confirmed to the newspaper Respublika by the office of European Commissioner responsible for energy Andris Piebalgs.

In answers provided for Respublika the office is highly diplomatic, yet it confirms the statements of MEP Ona Jukneviciene that LEO LT can violate several pieces of European legislation. The office also verified that the Government consultant Aleksandras Abisala met with Piebalgs during his visit to Brussels. Respublika asked the office of the European Commissioner to confirm or deny Jukneviciene"s statements that LEO LT was being established breaking some European laws. The reply, though not categorical, has been "yes".

Unfortunately, Brussels officials have not been willing to state what measures against LEO LT can be taken by the European Commission.

According to Respublika, the Commissioner has not commented on theoretical possibilities.
