BUSINESS BRIEFS

Transpetrol shares again blocked

A court has issued another injunction against the handling of shares in state-owned crude oil pipeline firm Transpetrol, tying the hands of the Economy Ministry, which wants to privatise a 49% Transpetrol stake by the end of the year. The injunction stems back to a 1994 dispute over unpaid taxes.

The sale of the pipeline operator is seen as a key step in the full liberalisation of Slovakia's energy market.
