VSH Development announced on Thursday, April 14, that it is in talks with the Slovak Tax Directorate concerning termination of an agreement on a future contract concerning rental of offices in Košice. The agreement was signed on February 23, 2010.

"We have learnt about the contract between the Tax Directorate and Nitra Invest based on it being published on the Tax Directorate portal," noted VSH Development CEO Ján Horvath, as quoted by the TASR newswire. He was referring to another deal agreed by the Tax Directorate to lease offices in Košice which has become the subject of controversy in recent days because of the political connections of the lessor.

Head of the Tax Directorate Miroslav Mikulčík has said several times that the agreement on the future contract with VSH Development was already terminated, based on a decision by the regional branch of the Tax Directorate to move into another building. In making the move, the branch said that it had discovered that more advantageous conditions were being offered by a company called Nitra Invest, which is co-owned by Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) regional official Ondrej Ščurka. The opposition Smer party has accused the SDKÚ, a member of the four-party ruling coalition, of cronyism.
