Banská Bystrica to lose town hall to creditors

Ján Králik, mayor of the central Slovak city Banská Bystrica, has said the town in 10 days is likely to lose its town hall, which former mayor Igor Presperin, now deputy speaker of parliament for the ruling coalition SOP, used as collateral for a Sk94 million debt to the collapsed Dopravna banka.
