Relocation puts Izák under the microscope

On December 11, the Pravda daily reported about the relocation of water management company Slovenský Vodohospodársky Podnik (SVP). SVP will be moved from its own building in Banská Štiavnica to a rented one in Žilina that is owned by a company close to Ján Slota, whose SNS party is a member of the ruling coalition.

SMER-SD MP Jana Laššákova has begun looking into the case, asking for an official explanation from the Environment Minister and SNS nominee Jaroslav Izák, who approved the relocation. Izák must respond within thirty days. SITA
