Bratislava Old Town’s construction office has issued orders for the removal of three illegal constructions and halted four other building projects, said Old Town mayor Tatiana Rosová (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union) at a press conference on Monday, March 28, the TASR newswire reported.

The mayor said a proposed amendment to the Criminal Code dealing with illegally-constructed buildings should improve law enforcement in this sphere.

"Our decisions are only on paper; it's not always easy to carry them out. In addition, the decisions are also often easily reversed by higher authorities," said Rosová to TASR.

Regarding a recently reported scandal concerning flats sold to famous politicians and other important persons at ridiculously low prices, Rosová said that the problem will be resolved by establishing a special committee of seven members who will assess the allocation of flats in the city district.
