The situation is getting worse. The Banská Bystrica Region is preparing a criminal report

Slovak Bus Transport (SAD) Zvolen avoids meetings and continues with non-standard practices. The chairman of the Banská Bystrica self-governing region (BBSK), Ján Lunter, stated this on Wednesday.

It calls on SAD Zvolen to sit down together at the negotiating table and resolve it disputed traffic situation. The county has also announced that it is preparing criminal cases announcement in connection with the January suspension of suburban transport in the region.

The carrier ignores the invitation to negotiate

As Lunter stated, the carrier ignores repeated calls for negotiations and instead, an ultimatum letter came. “The carrier is requesting release funds from notarial custody in the amount of almost 1.6 million although there is currently no payment for them legal reason. The letter of February 13 asks us to make money released within seven days, which I quote, ‘will create a more suitable precondition for non-conflict cooperation ‘. Such formulations again strongly evoke the situation from the end of January and I am afraid it is again a kind of pressure, if not blackmail, “the head of the region explained. The ultimatum expires on Thursday (20. 2.).

It’s about money

This is the money that SAD Zvolen is asking to pay extra for 2018. However according to the region, the carrier should be released from notarial custody until the production of a final judgment confirming his right to that sumu. However, the judgment is not yet final.

As noted by the vice-president of BBSK Ondrej Lunter, to prevent them further arbitrary suspension of suburban traffic, activated all existing legal instruments.

The situation is unpredictable

“Until the judgment on the validity of the amendment is valid, it is effective without delay a court order ordering the carrier to drive. There is also a regulation region as a transport administrative body, which it shows to the carrier operate in the public interest in accordance with the licenses in force; and approved timetables, “stressed the deputy chairman of the region. He doesn’t hide however, concerns about how the situation will turn out, as the response of SAD Zvolen is unpredictable.

A criminal report is being prepared

He also added that the sanctions that threaten the other party for violation urgent court action, are around 30,000 euros, which is for a company with an annual turnover of about 20 million, nothing. Ondrej Lunter also informed that the BBSK is preparing a criminal complaint in connection with the suspension of traffic in January and suspected threats, and abuse of monopoly position by SAD-elected Zvolen.

SAD Zvolen: The region will pay the amount due when the court decides

“BBSK’s management has produced more than five axes in the past period million. That is why our company had to join us to a non-standard solution – to the mode does not work. Subsequently after situation and acknowledgment of arrears by BBSK against ours companies for previous periods, ie 2018, 2019 and partly also for 2020, they publicly declared payments for 2019 and 2020, which they did. Arrears for the year 2018 presented to be deposited in a notarial custody, but sent funds in custody were not confirmed to us in any way, “the Board of Directors responded SAD Zvolen in its opinion provided by TASR.

“At first they claimed that they needed to study the judgment to pay the debt amounts for 2018. Now BBSK and their lawyer have modified the claim a they stated that they would pay the amount due for 2018 only when the court decided. This is further evidence of the “credibility of BBSK’s management”. They change their decisions like suits them according to the newly created situation. It should be noted that an action seeking the annulment of the amendment from 1 January 2019 onwards judgment by which their application was complied with, albeit still illegally, has nothing to do with the non-payment of the 2018 commitment, because the judgment does not deal with it. This means that the BBSK is still owed for 2018, which amounts to more than 1.5 million euros, “the management emphasized USA Zvolen.
