A meeting between Environment Minister Viliam Tursky and representatives of the Interblue Group is being planned for later this month, the SITA newswire reported. Interblue, the company that purchased Slovakia’s excess emission quotas for what some members of the opposition see as too low a price, is expected to shed some light onto the controversial emission deal.
The meeting is not expected to take place in Slovakia, Environment Ministry’s spokesperson Jana Kaplanova told SITA.
Slovakia sold its excess emissions quotas to Interblue in November 2008 for €5.05 per tonne which according to the opposition is much lower than what was paid to neighbouring countries. Representatives of opposition parties claim that Slovakia lost at least €66 million on the sale. SITA
