Supervision freezes VSŽ shares sale

The supervisory Financial Market Office yesterday froze the disputed sale of 21.24 percent shares of VZS steel maker and took 30 days for an investigation into the details of the sale. Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said he did not see a reason for the recall of Economy Minister Ľubomír Harach who approved the sale in late December.
