Mediapart had access to thousands of pages of documents detailing the safety system of the Flamanville EPR and the two adjoining reactors. They were provided to us, via Greenpeace, by a person who thus made it known that these ultra-sensitive files, which would make terrorists happy, are not protected as they should be, as security rules were not respected. These are more than sensitive documents, likely to endanger the tens of thousands of people who live around the Flamanville nuclear site. In theory, these files can only be viewed by certain professionals, selected for their reliability, validated by the prefecture and authorized by EDF. However, they have reached us, in very large numbers, via Greenpeace, on the initiative of a person who thus informs the general public that the procedures supposed to guarantee the confidentiality of nuclear security secrets are, in reality, not respected.

Greenpeace is attacking the site of the EPR nuclear reactor in Flamanville, in the English Channel. Confidential and detailed documents on the protection of the site could have been consulted by the NGO, she assures. “Greenpeace France has had access to several thousand pages of documents, including precise maps of the EPR site in Flamanville, the location of the security cameras or even descriptions of the electronic surveillance system,” she said in a statement. The NGO hostile to nuclear energy says it received these documents “without solicitation, research or investigation on the part of the association, by a person who had no professional reason to access them, neither working closely nor by far for the nuclear industry “. For Greenpeace, this proves that this information circulates freely and that it could easily have been communicated to a violent group. “We can then imagine the possibility of an intrusion, a site sabotage or theft of radioactive materials,” says the association.
