Chren files motion against Land Transfer Act
3 Jul 2014 Flash News
Independent MP Martin Chren (NOVA) has filed a motion at the Constitutional Court on July 2 over a law in May concerning the sale of agricultural land. The motion has been signed by 33 Opposition MPs.
“The recently adopted bill sponsored by Agriculture [and Rural Development] Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek is one of the worst ever to leave the Slovak parliament,” Chren said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “According to our analysis, altogether it violates up to seven articles of the constitution.”
The new law will also lead to a reduction in land values. He believes that this will help financial groups and big businessmen to be able to buy up large portions of Slovak land at low prices. "It also doesn't prevent the sale of land to foreigners, because despite the adoption of this law, businesses can sell the bought land by the transfer of shares in their company,” argued Chren.
