Lawsuit over sell-off bar

Businessman František Mojžiš is to sue the state for Sk7 billion ($148 million) for his being barred from the sale of the former state bank Slovenská sporiteľňa last year.

The head of the Drukos investment firm, which led a campaign to give clients a share in privatisations, said he was launching the action because "citizens' rights have been grossly infringed" when the government prevented him from bidding.

He said that he could have accepted entering and losing the tender, but could not come to terms with not being allowed to take part in the process at all.
