Jana Luetken is no longer a member of the managing board of the Switzerland-based Interblue Group Europe and is no longer authorised to act on the company's behalf, the eTREND web portal reported on February 22, the TASR newswire wrote.
The portal referred to an extract from the Swiss Company Register. According to the website, the name of the new person running the company isn’t listed in the register as yet. It has been claimed that Interblue Group Europe is the legal successor to the US-based company Interblue Group which bought 15 million tonnes of carbon-dioxide emission quotas from Slovakia in 2008.
That company is supposed to pay an additional €15 million – a bonus tied to so-called green projects under the sales contract. Luetken said in early December that the projects weren’t well defined and that the company would not pay the €15 million to Slovakia.
According to eTREND, this is the second substantial change at Interblue Group Europe in the past two weeks and the portal wrote that this indicates that a certain ‘tidying-up’ is underway at the company or that people behind the company want to complicate negotiations with Slovakia. TASR
