Sme: Košice tax building passes air quality inspection

The building of the tax office in Košice is reported to have passed an inspection by the public health authority, finding that the air in the facility conforms to regulation standards and that dangerous substances do not exceed legal limits. The Košice tax office is renting the building from former Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) Nitra district official Ondrej Ščurka, the Sme daily wrote in its Wednesday, April 10 issue.

The building of the tax office in Košice is reported to have passed an inspection by the public health authority, finding that the air in the facility conforms to regulation standards and that dangerous substances do not exceed legal limits. The Košice tax office is renting the building from former Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) Nitra district official Ondrej Ščurka, the Sme daily wrote in its Wednesday, April 10 issue.

Last week Prime Minister Robert Fico said that tax officials will be relocated to another building if findings reveal the building to be hazardous to their health. Ščurka would thus lose the lucrative order, which was a source of controversy during the government of former prime minister Iveta Radičová. Spokesperson for the public health authority Lenka Skalická informed, however, that they provided Ščurka only with partial results of the inspection. The authority has yet to publish its final analysis, Sme wrote.

Ščurka became known renting offices to the Tax Directorate under suspicious circumstances during the 2010-12 centre-right coalition government. Then-premier Iveta Radičová at first conceded that party cronyism may have been involved, but then-finance minister Ivan Mikloš (now an SDKÚ MP) backed Ščurka.
