Scientologist Wiedermann moves to another state office

THE STATE, governed by the Smer party, is not going to recall Scientologist Martin Wiedermann, who heads the Central Depository of Securities (CDCP), but rather, he is moving to a post in another state agency, the Sme daily wrote on May 15.

THE STATE, governed by the Smer party, is not going to recall Scientologist Martin Wiedermann, who heads the Central Depository of Securities (CDCP), but rather, he is moving to a post in another state agency, the Sme daily wrote on May 15.

The government privatisation company, the National Property Fund (FNM), confirmed that Wiedermann has become a member of the Board of Directors of the state joint-stock company Dlhopis, which takes over low value securities from citizens.

Wiedermann is a former schoolmate of the co-owners of the J&T financial group, Patrik Tkáč and Ivan Jakabovič, and they are still reportedly on friendly terms. However, J&T representatives say they have done nothing to help Wiedermann acquire the posts he has held, and they denied having any financial connections. Tkáč even told Sme that he “has been systematically dissuading Wiedermann from Scientology”.

The CDCP collects non-public information on state and private joint-stock companies, including the structure of shareholders and their personal data. The FNM maintains that Wiedermann has no authority to even review the tenders gathered in the depository.
