Gašparovič extends general pardons on broadcast license fees

President Ivan Gašparovič on July 9 signed a section of the Act on Safety and Health Protection at Work that extends the general pardon on debts related to broadcast license fees.

As a result, the Lawyer Partners law firm will no longer be able to collect, at home or at work, fees from anyone who settled their debts with Slovak Radio before February 20, 2006.

This resolves a long-standing dispute between the firm and the government over which debts could be collected, and when.
