RegioJet launches campaign against regions

PRIVATE company RegioJet launched a billboard campaign against the Bratislava and Nitra Self-Governing Regions. Its head Radim Jančura dislikes their decision not to grant his firm a license for a bus line from Bratislava to Banská Bystrica via Nitra, the Sme daily reported on January 3.“Welcome to the region of corruption and cronyism,” reads one of the billboards in Bratislava. Jančura refused to comment on the campaign, saying the company will either issue a press release or arrange a press conference next week. He was talking about the campaign already in December. He told the Aktualne.sk news website that he plans to spend €100,000 on it. The campaign should last until the heads of the region Pavol Frešo (Bratislava) and Milan Belica (Nitra) resign. “It is another coercive campaign with which Mr Jančura forces us to violate the law,” said Frešo in his January 2 response, as quoted by Sme. Oľga Prekopová, spokesperson for Nitra Region, said they are prepared to protect the reputation of the region.Source: SmeCompiled by Roman Cuprik from press reportsThe Slovak Spectator cannot vouch for the accuracy of the information presented in its Flash News postings.
