NEWS IN SHORT

Environment Minister to meet Interblue

A MEETING between Environment Minister Viliam Turský and representatives of the Interblue Group is being planned later in August, the SITA newswire reported.

Interblue Group, the company that purchased Slovakia’s excess emissions quotas for what some members of the opposition see as too low a price, is expected to shed some light on the controversial deal.

The meeting is not expected to take place in Slovakia, Environment Ministry’s spokesperson Jana Kaplanová 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 the amount neighbouring countries received for their quotas, suggesting Slovakia to may have lost as much as €66 million on the sale.
