Malatinský's memorandum of understanding with EUU refused by the Košice City Council
We have asked the MPs of the Košice City Council to refuse the Memorandum of understanding that had been signed by the Minster of economy Tomáš Malatinský and European Uranium Resources one year ago.
MP Ján Süli has adopted our proposal and presented it to the Council that has consequently approved a resolution refusing the Memorandum. Now it's the mayor's turn to confirm the resolution by adding his signature to it.
If the mayor is really against uranium mining and processing in Košice, we expect him to sign the resolution...
