More questions about ŽSR promissory notes

Police will again question Deputy PM Mária Kadlečíková and state railways firm head Andrej Egyed about six fraudulent promissory notes on the ŽSR railways firm worth $600 million and bearing Egyed’s signature that are said to be in the possession of an Austrian public notary.

Two other companies in Slovakia – telecoms firm ST and gas utility SPP – are fighting their own battles with promissory notes issued either fraudulently or controversially in the firms’ name and now in the hands of third parties.
