President Ivan Gasparovic’s son is hardly setting a good example as he built a big house near the government hotel Borik in Bratislava illegally without a corresponding building permit.
News of the illegal building was published today by daily Novy Cas, which states that the villa of the President’s son and his wife is almost 3 metres higher than that allowed by the issued permit. Now the Old Town borough of Bratislava will have to deal with the case, either by issuing an amended building permit or by ordering the building to be removed.
To date no ‘illegal’ buildings have been removed in Slovakia, apart from the shanty homes of Roma communities being torn down, so the President’s son can rest assured that everything will be fine. He has 60 days to request the amended permit.
