On August 4, a panel of the Regional Court in Bratislava ruled against a lawsuit filed by Elektrovod Holding consortium filed against Slovakia’s Office of Public Procurement (ÚVO), the TASR newswire wrote.

According to the court, ÚVO decided in compliance with the law, when on September 8, 2008, it rejected the claim of alleged discrimination during the public procurement for Slovakia’s electronic toll collection system.

“The ruling of the court is that neither the National Highway Company nor the defendant (ÚVO) violated the law during the procurement. Neither did they favour one of the competitors,” the spokesman of the Regional Court, Pavol Adamčiak, told TASR. He added that the verdict was not yet effective since both sides can appeal within 15 days.

Three consortiums filed a total of eight lawsuits against ÚVO decisions in connection with the electronic toll tender, with Elektrovod Holding filing two of them. Another three were filed by Autostrade company. So far, the Regional Court has ruled in three cases out of the eight filed. On the same day, the Regional Court panel dismissed the suit of another consortium lead by Austrian
Kapsch TrafficCom AG against ÚVO. The ÚVO had excluded this consortium from the procurement for the toll collection system. TASR
