Quote of the Week:


"If a building you own has such a high value, why would you need a third party to take over your debt? Why not sell the building directly, pay your debt, and use the rest of the money?"


- Zuzana Wienk from the Fair Play Alliance, commenting on the Sk22 million (€566,000) debt that an unnamed firm took over from the Slovak and Christian Democratic Union (SDKÚ). It is believed that the SDKÚ earned around Sk50.2 million from the sale of its building on Medená Street in Bratislava last year. (See News Shorts page 2)
