Burning elements from Lingen can be delivered to the atomic power plant Leibstadt in Switzerland. The Administrative Court Frankfurt am Main has decided that despite an entitled opposition, the export license granted by the Federal Office for Economics and Export Control (BAFA) can be completed immediately for the combustion element manufacturer Framatome.
Three persons living in the Suden Baden-Wurttemberg, as well as the Environmental Protection Association Confederation had filed the objection. The nuclear power plant is outdated and stored and do not require the current safety requirements, it is used for the security of the whole region. In the case of a serious accident, there will be much more radiation victims on the German side than in Switzerland. The BAFA durfe therefore does not contribute to the danger of the own population by iing an export license for the fuel assembled for the operation of the reactor.
The Administrative Court was the contradiction as "obviously inadmissible", Why do not cause any suspensive effect. Natural persons are not objectionable, as the Hessian administrative court in December 2020 exported. The nuclear export scheme does not protect them in their individual fundamental rights for life and health, but serve for the protection of the state and the interest of the general public.
