Documents that the board of the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) submitted to a government session last week contain no suspicious decisions as Smer chairman Robert Fico hinted might be the case last week, outgoing Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said after the government session on March 21, the TASR newswire reported. Radičová said that at the behest of President Ivan Gašparovič she urged the SPF's board, via Agriculture Minister Zsolt Simon, to submit documentation.

Documents that the board of the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) submitted to a government session last week contain no suspicious decisions as Smer chairman Robert Fico hinted might be the case last week, outgoing Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said after the government session on March 21, the TASR newswire reported.

Radičová said that at the behest of President Ivan Gašparovič she urged the SPF's board, via Agriculture Minister Zsolt Simon, to submit documentation.

"We've found no unlawful or suspicious decisions at all," Radičová stated, as quoted by TASR.

Fico said after meeting Gašparovič on March 15 that SPF planned to make almost 300 last-minute decisions on the rental, sale or restitution of land. He added that Smer learned about these plans from members of the SPF supervisory board on March 14.

"It isn't right to have such important economic decisions made at a time when the government is finishing its term and a new government is being formed," Fico had stated.
