Audit Office: Land Fund made mistakes in land restitutions

According to a report by the Supreme Audit Office released on August 18, the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) violated rules upon land restitutions to private individuals, the Church, and religious groups in the years of 2004 to 2007 and "there are still shortcomings in its operation".

According to a report by the Supreme Audit Office released on August 18, the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) violated rules upon land restitutions to private individuals, the Church, and religious groups in the years of 2004 to 2007 and "there are still shortcomings in its operation".

This confirmed shortcomings the media reported on last year. According to the report, contracts signed by then-SPF Deputy Director General Branislav Bríza contained incorrect land price estimations, based on which eligible persons got land in restitution proceedings at a higher value or higher area that they were entitled to.
