On December 6, the Sme daily reported that an unprecedented lawsuit in the history of Slovakia has been filed. A company that alleges electricity and gas prices from 2003 until May 2006 were higher than they should have been is suing the Slovak government on behalf of affected households.
The firm bringing the case is Slov-Energia and it is suing for compensation that could amount to billions of crowns.
According to Slov-Energia, the government is liable because its regulatory office did not publish its decisions on prices in the Collection of Laws. Therefore, the decisions never took effect. SITA
