THE CONTROVERSIAL transfer of the Glance House real estate development has been halted. The Administration of the Bratislava Cadastre has decided that last year’s transfer of ownership of Glance House in Bernolákovo to Gapeja, a firm with ties to business tycoon Marián Kočner, was illegal and cancelled it after a four month dispute, the Sme daily reported on April 2.

The decision mirrors the opinion of the Office of the General Prosecutor, which believes that transferring the building to Gapeja was a violation of the law.

The cadastre administration turned down the appeal submitted by Gapeja’s bankruptcy administrator, Eva Timár Myjavcová, against the halt to the transfer of the building. The verdict is not, however, final as Gapeja can now turn to the regional court and then the Supreme Court, as it has already announced it will do.

The General Prosecutor’s Office became involved in the matter last November when it was confirmed that former general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka enabled the transfer via an unlawful letter.

Kočner planned to sell the property, over which two groups have been engaged for years in a dispute involving an auction as part of Gapeja’s bankruptcy proceeding. The police are still investigating the case.
