Ministry must specify why parts of KIA and PSA contracts confidential

SLOVAKIA'S Supreme Court came down on the side of non-governmental organization Friends of the Earth-CEPA April 8, against the Economy Ministry in connection with the confidentiality of its agreements with Hyundai/KIA and PSA Peugeot Citroen.

The Economy Ministry must specify exactly which particular parts of the contracts are confidential, the court ruled, the TASR news agency reported.

Friends of the Earth-CEPA also expects the Economy Ministry to publish the non-confidential parts relating to its handling of state property. Otherwise, they will bring another suit against the Economy Ministry, said Roman Havlíček, Friends of the Earth-CEPA Coordinator.

Regarding KIA, Friends of the Earth-CEPA wants details about the investment, public finance contributions and the allocations for regional improvement in Žilina to be published.
