Slovakia could obtain the 15 million euros that the emission dealer Interblue Groups owes the state, Milan Růžička, the alleged owner of its legal successor Interblue Group Europe told the Sme daily that the “company has enough financial resources to pay this amount”.

Růžička claims he had provided the minister with the joint statement of the companies Interblue Group LLc and Interblue Group Europe.
