Slovakia loses arbitration case

SLOVAKIA has to pay Sk141 million (€3.5 million) to the Supercom Slovakia company, which was supposed to have supplied the Slovak Interior Ministry with technology for the production of new EU identification documents, an arbitration court in Vienna decided.

The private TV Markíza reported that the case goes back to 1998 when former Movement for a Democratic Slovakia member Gustáv Krajči was the interior minister. Slovakia has filed a complaint against the ruling, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote.
