Cabinet meets to study Bohunice texts

A special session of cabinet was convened to discuss differences in the wording of the English and Slovak texts of a contract for Sk6.5 billion in foreign aid from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development for shutting down the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear plant from 2006-2008. The English version had said the money was for both shutting down and completely liquidating the facility, the Slovak only turning it off.
