Transport Minister Ján Figeľ appointed Ján Kotula to the post of general director and board chairman of the National Highway Company (NDS), ministry spokesman Martin Krajčovič told the TASR newswire on June 23. Figeľ also appointed Milan Gajdoš to the post of board vice-chairman.

Transport Minister Ján Figeľ appointed Ján Kotula to the post of general director and board chairman of the National Highway Company (NDS), ministry spokesman Martin Krajčovič told the TASR newswire on June 23. Figeľ also appointed Milan Gajdoš to the post of board vice-chairman.

Kotula had been serving as NDS's board vice-chairman and became the company's interim head in May after previous chief Alan Sitár was dismissed over controversy involving purchases of high-cost training and consulting services for NDS. The controversy came to light when disaffected NDS employees sent a whistle-blowing letter to Figeľ.

Sitár defended his decision for the training as a correct move for the company.
