ONE of the leading Slovak dailies, Pravda, changed hands last year. The Pravda.sk internet news portal reported on March 23, 2010, that Karol Biermann became the new owner of the Pravda daily via the purchase of the publishing houses Perex, which publishes the daily, and Avízo by Florena. Florena is owned by Biermann, the SITA newswire wrote.
Pravda.sk reported that Florena’s purchase of both companies from the British media group Daily Mail & General Trust, which owns the Daily Mail newspaper in Great Britain, was mediated by the Slovak financial group J&T.
The former British owners had been publishing Pravda since mid-2006.
