Public-service Slovak Television lost a trial which has been dragging on for years, the SITA newswire reported. The lawsuit involved the Omega Plus company which sued the broadcaster for having withdrawn from a contract for production of a weather forecast program.

According to the contract, the company was to have produced the program for STV until 2005. The contract was signed in 1997 in the era of director Ivan Kubiš and was revoked when Milan Materák was at helm of the public service broadcaster.

The court decided that STV is to pay the principal of €2,826,584.88 and court costs of €157,397.96. The Bratislava Regional Court decided on the matter on June 22 this year. Its spokesman Pavol Adamčiak explained to SITA that the court was bound by the legal opinion of the appellate court, which was the Supreme Court.

The senate of appeals came to a conclusion that the first-instance court drew up correct factual and legal conclusions in the verdict it reached on June 27, 2007.
