Prime Minister Robert Fico’s comments at a conference on the completion of the Mochovce Nuclear Power Plant (EMO) misled the public, as he is backing an outdated project that could endanger the country's security, the Supporting Mother Earth NGO stated, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

"Boasting about technology that is more than 35 years old and does not fulfill the standards of nuclear power stations in Western Europe is reminiscent of the country’s energy policy prior to 1989," Pavol Široký, the NGO’s chairman said.

Široký also objected to the fact that the public is not being given the chance to voice its opinion on the issue, and that nearly all documents about it are confidential.

The Ngo opposes the completion of the Mochovce nuclear power plant because the project only develops non-sustainable, environmentally unfriendly and financially irrecoverable energy. SITA
