 Nuclear power deal between Hungary, Russia to be secret for 30 years

Details of a nuclear power expansion deal between Hungary and Russia will be kept under wraps for three decades.
 
Hungary approved the legislation that would keep business and technical aspects of the plan for Rosatom to build two new reactors at the Paks plant a secret for 30 years, according to Fox News. The Hungarian government says the bill is needed for national security reasons and is in line with similar guidelines in other European countries, the article said.
 
Those who oppose the legislation say it is essentially a “hotbed for corruption,” the article said.
