Puhringer loses trust in Czech Office for Nuclear Safety

The Governor of the Upper Austria region, Josef Puhringer, has said he has lost all trust in the head of the Czech Office for Nuclear Safety, Dana Drabova. He said after posing questions on the safety of the controversial Temelin nuclear power plant, Mrs. Drabova sent him a written confirmation in which she had agreed to hold open talks with not only experts on nuclear power but also with anti-nuclear activists and the media. However, as Mr. Puhringer noted, although he had even appointed a co-ordinator upon Mrs. Drabova's request, there has been no sign of the promised communication, which should have begun in March.
