ÚRSO said it had launched an investigation into the firm after receiving numerous complaints from Energetické Centrum clients, the Sme daily wrote on May 17.

Ján Slabý of Energetické Centrum said his firm was unable to comment as it was still studying the 80-page ruling by ÚRSO. Energetické Centrum was bought in February by the Swiss company Cromicron.
