Slovakia could sue the European Commission over Slovenská Pošta

Slovakia's Ministry of Transport and the state-owned postal service company Slovenská Pošta are preparing a lawsuit against a decision by the European Commission (EC), in which it ordered Slovakia to re-open its hybrid mail market.

Slovakia's Ministry of Transport and the state-owned postal service company Slovenská Pošta are preparing a lawsuit against a decision by the European Commission (EC), in which it ordered Slovakia to re-open its hybrid mail market.

Prime Minister Robert Fico presented the plan following a meeting with Slovenská Pošta Director General Libor Chrást.

Fico criticised the European Commission's decision, describing it as a manifestation of pressure from alternative postal services providers.

Chrást said that the decision to file a lawsuit was not yet final but could be made within two months of the date of the EC's decision (which was issued on October 7). SITA
