Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová will offer her view on the rent of a building for the Tax Directorate in Košice after Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš returns to Slovakia, the prime minister's spokesperson, Rado Baťo, told the SITA newswire on August 30.

The Tax Directorate decided to make a deal for the rental with Nitra Invest, controlled by Ondrej Ščurka, the district leader of Radičová’s political party, in spite of appeals from some NGOs to not do so. The Fair-Play Alliance recommended that the Tax Directorate refuse to sign the contract and cancel the tender saying that the criteria were tailored-made for Ščurka's firm. This was the second tender to choose a building for the tax authorities in Košice.
