Zemková says she cannot return SRo severance payment

Head of Radio and Television Slovakia (RTVS) Miloslava Zemková says she cannot return a severance payment worth four months’ salary that she received when she left Slovak Radio (SRo) at the time the institution merged with Slovak Television (STV). Zemková said that she has nowhere to return the money to, the TASR newswire reported on Tuesday, April 12, citing RTVS spokesperson Alexandra Stullerová Koreňová.

Head of Radio and Television Slovakia (RTVS) Miloslava Zemková says she cannot return a severance payment worth four months’ salary that she received when she left Slovak Radio (SRo) at the time the institution merged with Slovak Television (STV). Zemková said that she has nowhere to return the money to, the TASR newswire reported on Tuesday, April 12, citing RTVS spokesperson Alexandra Stullerová Koreňová.

Zemková's statement came in response to a call by Richard Sulík, the speaker of parliament and leader of the coalition Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party, who said earlier in the day that Zemková, who is now the boss of RTVS, should return the payment, amounting to some €17,000. Stullerová Koreňová noted that Zemková received the severance pay from the budget of Slovak Radio, which has institutionally ceased to exist, and not from RTVS. "She can only donate the money, which she did," said Stullerová Koreňová, without giving any details as to who the recipient was.
