Malchárek dismisses general manager of KIA project

NEW ECONOMY Minster Jirko malchárek dismissed Stanislav Vinc from his post of general manager of the KIA project on October 7, the daily SME reported.

"It is a political decision which I will accept," Vince said. According to the minister KIA investment preparation near Žilina has been, in managerial terms, mishandled.

Malchárek criticized Vinc for misleading the public by declaring that the KIA road construction was also an archaeological investigation. He added that communication with the KIA landowners was “not very polite”.

Žilina mayor Ján Slota accepted Malchárek's request and also dismissed Vinc from his position as statutory representative of Žilina Invest.
