Sme: Why the hesitation on Bríza?

The Sme daily posed this question on its front page on December 6. It refers to the former deputy director of the Slovak Land Fund, Branislav Bríza, whose dismissal last month almost led to the break up of the ruling coalition.

But despite being fired from the Land Fun, Bríza still chairs its board of trustees. Prime Minister Fico said he would demand Bríza’s dismissal from that position as well, but according to Agriculture Minister Zdenka Kramplová, no motion has been submitted as of yet to remove him.

Kramplová expects a solution to the issue in late January, after a commission appointed to deal with the case presents its report. SITA
