  • A Bulgarian lawyer has sent an eight-page letter to the European Commission pointing to various alleged violations of EU competition rules relating to the oft-delayed Belene nuclear power plant, EURACTIV Bulgaria reports.
  • This, in her words, violates competition rules and procurement requirements for the delivery of goods and the provision of services.
  • Krasen Stanchev, founder of the Institute for Market Economics, pointed out that, under the Euratom Treaty, the Belene NPP cannot be financed by a non-EU third party.
