Police open investigation on Bríza

Slovak police have launched a criminal investigation into whether a public official misused his power in the dubious land transfers in the High Tatras that almost caused split of the ruling coalition, the Sme daily wrote on December 5.

The police have found at least eight contracts with restitution claimants to be suspicious, signed by HZDS nominee and former deputy director of the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) Branislav Bríza. He signed the contracts in early April, when the then-SPF boss František Hideghety (SMK) was on holiday.

Bríza signed 15 contracts in 13 days, and he was authorised to do so.
