Slovakia failed to create suitable conditions to secure the safe, appropriate, and timely implementation of this programme next year, according to the spokesperson of the EC Representation in Slovakia, Ingrid Ludviková, as reported by SITA.

Slovakia will also have to return the deposit of €1.1 million that it received from the EC budget for this purpose.
