Kia fined for construction without permit

THE SLOVAK Building Inspectorate (SSI) has fined the Kia carmaker for building parts of its auto plant near Žilina without building permits.

SSI said that Kia built its pressroom, welding hall, assembly hall, and paint hall, as well as a temporary construction site, without the required construction permits.

Kia, which has been in trial operations for a week already, has appealed the SSI decision. The size of the fine was not disclosed, the Pravda daily wrote.

Kia refused to comment on the fine.

"The delays in the construction of the car plant are connected with the delayed purchase of the land. The Slovak government is responsible for meeting its commitments in the investment contract, but it is not meeting them on time. We are sticking to the investment schedule," said Kia Motors Slovakia spokesman Dušan Dvořák.
