Former Bratislava mayor welcomes charges

Former Bratislava mayor and member of parliament for the ruling SDKÚ party, Peter Kresánek, has welcomed the recommendation of a parliamentary committee that his immunity from prosecution be stripped to face charges over the sale of a city building in 1996.

Kresánek has said he takes political responsibility for his actions on the sale, in which a contract approved by city hall was revised unilaterally and secretly by the mayor to give the purchaser more lenient terms. However, he has always rejected criminal wrongdoing in the case, and says he wants a chance to clear his name before a court.

Kresánek is the seventh MP that the parliamentary committee has recommended face charges. Not a single case has yet gone before a court.
