Čarnogurský again butts in to debt settlement

A cabinet dispute has erupted between Finance Minister František Hajnovič, who wants part of Russia’s debt to Slovakia repaid in cash, and Justice Minister Ján Čarnogurský, who favours imports of raw materials.

Čarnogurský has in the past been accused of having in interest in raw materials imports, as his brother, businessman Ivan Čarnogurský, several times in the past negotiated with crashed financial house Devín banka in an attempt to broker a deal between Russia and Germany on raw material trade.
