BUSINESS BRIEFS

Rusko concerned about lobbying

ECONOMY Minister Pavol Rusko is concerned about strong lobbying pressure on a tender to sell gas/steam energy producer Paroplynový Cyklus.

However, he refused to name any of the suspected lobby groups, wrote the daily SME.

Rusko also fears there are attempts to discredit him because of his activities linked to the privatisation of the company.

He says he has information showing that his opponents are seeking people willing to claim they bribed him.

Jozef Kojda, president of the national privatisation agency FNM, denies Rusko's claims about irregularities in the privatisation of PPC.

"If Rusko has such information, he ought to turn to the police," he said.

PPC was founded in 1996 and the FNM controls 90 percent of its stock. The registered capital is worth Sk600 million (€14.68 million).
