Opposition politicians are worried that the insulation programme launched by the government and paid for from the money earned from the controversial sale of emissions quotas will be successful and that is why it attacks the government in connection with the sale, Prime Minister Robert Fico said, as reported by the SITA newswire.

Fico is glad that the Environment Ministry has published the full text of the controversial contract on its website.

“Let the public and the media evaluate the contract,” SITA quoted Fico as saying.

The text of the contract has confirmed the information previously calculated and published by the opposition and the media. According to the contract, the Slovak emissions quotas were sold to the Interblue Group for €5.05 per tonne, which according to media information is less than the Czechs sold their quotas at the same time.
