Kinčeš returns bargain flat

A flat that cost state gas utility SPP Sk4.85 million ($100,000) to build but which was sold to former SPP boss Pavol Kinčeš for Sk1,648 ($34) has been returned to the utility.

Kinčeš was forced out of his job as head of SPP in June after news of the purchase broke in local media. The scandal prompted Economy Minister Ľubomír Harach to leave Kinčeš off management boards when the company was turned into a joint stock company that month.

In 1999 SPP paid for reconstruction of the flat and luxurious furniture to be installed.

A colleague of Kinčeš, Pavol Hríň, also has a contract on a flat in the same building. Spokeswoman for SPP Dana Kršáková said that Hríň has not agreed to return the flat yet and is currently studying a proposal from the company.
