IN SHORT

Land to be returned

LANDOWNERS who in the early 1990s failed to claim the return of their property confiscated by the communists between 1948 and 1989 will be able to do so in the course of next year.

Parliament approved a law that will enable the original landowners to claim their property that is currently administered by the country's Land Fund (PF). About 600,000 hectares of land is currently registered as belonging to unidentified owners.

Pavol Botka, head of the Association of Landowners and Agro-entrepreneurs, estimated for the daily Pravda newspaper that approximately 100,000 hectares would be returned to their original owners.

The land that remains unclaimed after next year will be transferred to municipalities.
