Thousands have come together and founded a consumers’ association Ombudspot in Poprad that can legally represent all those who suffered damages. Miroslav Antoňak alone managed to collect more than 2,000 signatures and filed a lawsuit.

Mária Faltániová, the spokesperson of the Regional Office of Police Corps in Banská Bystrica announced that an ivestigation has been launched but refused to tell people whether they should pay the sums required.
