Filipino Supreme Court Justice: Stop Paying Nuke Plant Debt

April 20, 2005 (, Philippines) — The Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, once backed by the ECA US Ex-Im, is now under fire by a Filipino Supreme Court Justice who is urging the government to stop payments for loans that the late President Marcos borrowed to build the now-mothballed plant. The Justice said "[Several foreign creditors] knew or had no reason not to know that the loans will be used for some illegitimate purpose like supporting notoriously brazen and kleptocratic military regimes."
