Lorenc, SPP trials postponed

The trial of former communist spy chief Alojz Lorenc was yesterday postponed until December 5 to give the prosecution time to call more witnesses. Proceedings in a promissory notes case between Slovak gas utility SPP and the Czech Union Banka were also put off until November 15 following a complaint by SPP lawyer Ernest Valko that the trial judge was unfamiliar with the case details.
