The data related to plans for the expansion of Hungary’s sole nuclear plant. The Budapest police force has launched an investigation.
The company said in a weekend statement that it would not comment further until the police probe has been concluded. The LMP and Együtt parties have called for Parliament’s national security committee to be convened to discuss the matter. Further, they have demanded that the government report on what took place.
