An envoy of the Slovak Foreign Ministry has left for Chad to discuss the plight of Slovak national Jozef Ličko, who is currently being prevented from leaving the country because of an ongoing investigation. The envoy is supposed to communicate with the country’s authorities about a possible solution to the case.

“Negotiations are concurrently prepared in close cooperation with the French Embassy to Chad, but in order to reach a positive development we will not release further details – as previous experience shows it is more effective to act without the media present, especially in sensitive cases,” the ministry press department said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

Ličko went to Chad last year as an employee of the Slovak firm HONTstav, the main subcontractor to Soliinvest, a Libyan-Chadian firm which had received a state order to construct a football stadium in country’s capital, N’Djamena. At the end of last December Soliinvest lodged a complaint against its Slovak partner with the Chadian prosecution office, saying it “doubted the company’s plans”.

Based on the complaint the country’s authorities issued a ruling which banned Ličko from leaving Chad until the case is solved. His movements within the country have not been limited, SITA wrote.
