Railways head packs bags

Andrej Egyed, the head of the state railways firm, has decided to resign after a stormy four-year stewardship involving suspect tenders for new rail carriages, unauthorised promissory notes and a new luxury headquarters.

Pavol Rusko, head of the ruling coalition Ano party, said: “I am informed director Egyed is packing his bags. I think that’s a wise decision.”
