Košice to demolish another apartment building in Lunik IX

The city of Košice has decided to demolish another apartment building in the Lunik IX neighbourhood that city officials said had been damaged beyond repair by some of its illegal Roma inhabitants, the TASR newswire was told by Linda Šnajdárová of Košice city hall’s press department on May 28. "The critical state of the apartment block, Hrebendova 14-16, has been worsening ... it has come to the point where the lives of people living in or around the building are endangered," TASR quoted Šnajdárová. She added than reconstruction would cost more than constructing a new building. "Overall, there are 30 apartments in the building with 225 inhabitants. Only two of these people have a valid rental agreement, all others are squatters who live at the premises illegally," stated Šnajdárová.
