Nice New Car for University Dean
The dean of Comenius University in Bratislava has come under criticism for purchasing a brand new Mercedes Benz costing EUR 63,000 to be driven around in.
The rector, Karol Micieta, sees nothing wrong with the purchase, saying how the former 8-year old obsolete Audi had to be replaced and how safety should not be compromised. He also pointed out the importance of representation, saying they did not use it to go shopping.
The dean noted how the school is funded from different sources and acts in a highly transparent way.
