The final report of the expert team set up to independently evaluate the completion of the construction of the Czech Republic’s Temelin nuclear plant offers no new information, according to the trade and industry minister’s head secretary Vladimir Nesrsta.

“The conclusions of the Temelin commission are so terribly ambiguous that it will be necessary to do some more work in this direction so that the government could arrive at a final decision. It is hard to decide anything on the basis of this report,” he commented.

He also questioned the efficiency of the funds spent on the expert report. “A conclusion such as ‘if energy consumption grows, Temelin will be justified, if it doesn’t grow, it will not be justified’, is a truth which could have been obtained much more cheaply,” he said.
