The northern command military leadership has met with officials from the Dabaa nuclear site to discuss local residents’ raid on the site. The residents have rejected the option of negotiations to bring an end to their sit-in.
The Nuclear Stations Authority has been blamed for failing to secure the site and for not dismantling radioactive equipment even though the site was stormed ten days ago, putting inhabitants of the surrounding area at risk.
Mohi al-Essawy of the National Center for Nuclear Safety explained that it is the responsibility of the Nuclear Stations Authority and not the Nuclear Safety Authority to secure the site.
Security sources said local residents refused to accept compensation from the government in return for confiscating the land on which the nuclear site is being built.
