Minister refuses to release Kia and Peugeot contracts

ECONOMY Minister Pavol Rusko will not publish the contracts between the state and the PSA Peugeot Citroen and Hyundai Kia carmakers, even though the cabinet said that the state should reveal the assistance it offers foreign investors, wrote the Pravda daily.

On June 23 the Slovak cabinet discussed materials prepared by Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic that argued that such information should be published based on the effective free access to information law.

"I am repeating this for 99th time,” Rusko said, “What you know and should know about Kia, you already know. I will not talk about it anymore."
