President confirms mining accident compensation

Families of miners who died in an accident in the Baňa Nováky brown-coal mine last November have received Sk1 million per person, the office of president Ivan Gašparovič announced on August 7.

The announcement came after a meeting between the president and Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek.

Gašparovič also met with the president of the Police Corps, General Ján Packa, to discuss changes to the organisational structure of Slovakia's Police Corps.

He also met with Slovakia's ambassador to the United States, Rastislav Káčer, to talk about the president's participation in the upcoming 62nd United Nations General Assembly in New York in September.
