Police restrict access to disputed KIA land

POLICE are making sure that unauthorized personnel do not cross land that is needed to access a new KIA manufacturing plant that is currently being built near Zilina, the daily SME wrote.

The title to some of the disputed land, which has been sold to the state, has not yet been transferred.

On August 19, the police said it could not prohibit anyone from accessing the disputed land, despite a preliminary injunction by the Žilina District Court banning all unauthorized access. The police changed its decision August 20 after consulting with Interior Minister Vladimír Palko, Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic and General Prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka.
