Mikloš rejects further demands from landowners

THE SLOVAK government will reject any further demands from the owners of the land intended for infrastructure for the Korean investor KIA, the SME daily reported.

Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš said that if the state fails to acquire the land where the KIA road should be built, the road that crosses the village of Teplička nad Váhom will be used to transport heavy machinery to the KIA site.

Miklóš suggested that if that were the case it would lower the quality of housing conditions for the inhabitants of the village.

The general manager of the project, Stanislav Vinc, said transporting equipment weighing 150 tonnes could endanger the stability of houses in the village. The mayor of the village, Tibor Mintál, also thinks the road in the village is not suitable for the transport of heavy machinery.

The minister was reacting to a group of dissatisfied landowners who are demanding that they get at least Sk350 (€9) per square metre for their plots.

The prices for plots needed for infrastructure set by an expert assessment range from Sk216 (€5.5) to Sk516 (€13), depending on the quality of soil, locality and other factors.
