Vážny: State to support Post Office in legal case against EC

The state will be a party of interest in the Slovak Post Office's appeal against the European Commission's ruling involving hybrid post-services, Transportation, Posts and Telecommunications Minister Ľubomír Vážny said on November 26 in Bratislava.

The state will be a party of interest in the Slovak Post Office's appeal against the European Commission's ruling involving hybrid post-services, Transportation, Posts and Telecommunications Minister Ľubomír Vážny said on November 26 in Bratislava.

Even though the government disagrees with the ruling, the EC's decision – that Slovakia has to re-open competition in the field of hybrid post-services – cannot be postponed, said Vážny.

"We have to respect it. At the moment, the Slovak Post Office and the Post Regulation Office can't punish alternative operators for using the designation 'hybrid post' services," he noted.

Hybrid post is a specific form of postal services. It involves electronic invoices transferred from the sender to the provider, who prints them, collates, sorts and delivers as post. It's an important service for companies such as banks, insurance companies and telecommunication companies, because, compared to the non-electronic system, it saves time. TASR
