Alleged coalition supporter gets last radio license

Peter Juráš, the chairman of the Board for Radio and Television Broadcasting, announced on July 2 that Radio Koliba will be granted a license to broadcast in Bratislava and Banská Bystrica, ČTK reported. The new station's co-owner is Fedor Flašík, director of the Donar advertising agency, which has close ties with the ruling Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS). Flašík was among the main organizers of the HZDS's 1994 election campaign, and he composed the party's election song "Vivat Slovakia." Juráš said that by granting the license "we have used all the free frequencies for the next six years."
