The power generating company Slovenské elektrárne has finished a hot hydro test in the third block of the Mochovce nuclear power plant, near Levice, in the south of Slovakia. At a time when the company is trying to comfort the public with the good news, the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) detained the company's former head.
The police arrested Paolo Ruzzini on April 15 at the airport in Bratislava. Investigators have also accused another former head of the company, Nicola Cotugno, who replaced Ruzzini in the post.
