The Bratislava Regional Court has ruled on the side of companies which had failed in bids to receive licenses to operate medical rescue services, the Sme daily wrote on January 12. The court ruled on January 11 that the Health Ministry had breached the law in the selection procedure when choosing the providers of rescue services.

The attorney representing the five companies that brought the case to court, Marek Benedik, told Sme that he thought the tender should be repeated.

Licenses were awarded during the term of former health minister Richard Raši (Smer) who told Sme that the process was in accordance with the law. His successor, Ivan Uhliarik from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), said he will express an opinion only after he has received the court written decision.

The failed bidders stated that they had not been told why they were unsuccessful.
