The Polish unit of Greenpeace has filed a complaint to the regional administrative court in Warsaw regarding the National Nuclear Energy Program, the organization said on Friday.

“Despite repeated requests, Prime Minister Donald Tusk did not give satisfactory answers to questions about the program,” Greenpeace said. In the organization’s opinion, the approval of the  program breached both national and international law.

Greenpeace stressed that the Polish government has failed to prove that the choice of nuclear energy was made after a wide-ranging analysis. Various aspects, such as a comparison with other types of energy, possible breakdowns of nuclear power plants and the storage of radioactive waste, were ignore, the statement said.

Poland’s government adopted the nuclear scheme on January 28, 2014. It stipulates for the construction of the country’s first nuclear power unit by the end of 2024.
