BERLIN, June 7 The German government intends to
pay back around 6.3 billion euros plus interest to utilities
after the Constitutional Court ruled on Wednesday that the
country's nuclear fuel tax was illegal, a spokesman for the
Finance Ministry said.
"Of course the government will implement the ruling," a
spokesman for the Finance Ministry said at a government news
He said it was unclear exactly how much interest would be
paid and added that the government did not plan to introduce a
new tax to replace the nuclear fuel tax.
