Minister concerned for state forests

AGRICULTURE Minister and head of Democratic Left Party Pavol Koncoš, says he is concerned for the future of state owned forests in Slovakia.

Koncoš said that Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Mikloš and the Anti-Monopoly Office were interested in privatising the forests, an idea Koncoš strongly opposes. "Enough was stolen by the chosen ones in privatisation already. God save us from selling the state forests," Koncoš said.
