Žilina factory connected to SNS’s Slota gets building permit

Construction of a plant for production of styrofoam insulation in Žilina may now proceed as the company, Slovben, which is connected to the children of the Slovak National Party (SNS) leader Ján Slota and which began construction without a building permit, has now been granted one, the SITA newswire wrote.

Construction of a plant for production of styrofoam insulation in Žilina may now proceed as the company, Slovben, which is connected to the children of the Slovak National Party (SNS) leader Ján Slota and which began construction without a building permit, has now been granted one, the SITA newswire wrote.

Žilina city council spokesperson Martin Barcík informed SITA that during the proceedings on legalisation of the construction, it was not proven that the project contradicted public interest. Originally, Slovben was penalised by the State Construction Inspection for beginning construction without a building permit.

The company could be ordered to pay a fine of as much as €166,000 for violation of the construction law. However, what fine the company received is not publicly known at this point. The SITA news agency could not confirm, either, whether the company will pay the fine or whether it will appeal the decision.

Slovben's authorized representative is Slota's step-daughter Alžbeta Porubcová. His sons Ján and Pavol are members of the board of directors of the company SH+ which will operate the plant. The State Construction Supervision found in March that the construction was launched without any building permit. After the authorities warned the investor in March, the project was halted. SITA
