Chad promises answers in Ličko case

Representatives of the government of Chad promised the envoy of the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry, Vladimír Jakabčin, to provide answers to questions concerning the case of Jozef Ličko Jr. The man is currently unable to leave the country based on a ban issued by the state prosecutor of Chad. Chad’s authorities also promised to respond to a letter by Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič, in which he calls on them to allow Ličko to return home, the SITA newswire reported on March 8.

Representatives of the government of Chad promised the envoy of the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry, Vladimír Jakabčin, to provide answers to questions concerning the case of Jozef Ličko Jr. The man is currently unable to leave the country based on a ban issued by the state prosecutor of Chad. Chad’s authorities also promised to respond to a letter by Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič, in which he calls on them to allow Ličko to return home, the SITA newswire reported on March 8.

Based on information from the press department of the Slovak MFA, Chad’s authorities say the core of the whole problem lies in an unresolved dispute between Libyan-Chad firm Soliinvest and its Slovak partner HONTstav, who is the authorised representative of Ličko’s father.

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

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