Nuclear Waste not passing through

Friday, October 17, 2008

Luxembourg's Minister for Health, Mars Di Bartolomeo, has confirmed that no nuclear waste is, nor has been, transported through the Grand Duchy.

The information was provided in response to a parliamentary question which was raised following an incident this summer when a train carrying nuclear waste was stopped (outside Luxembourg) on its way to the Moselle.

However, European regulations do not require one country to inform another that train cargo passing close to a country's border may contain nuclear waste.
