SME daily writes today about another dubious contract, this time from 2008 and involving the public institution Geodetic and Cartographic Institute (GKU) while led by Patrik Hensel, who was put in the post by the Slovak National Party (SNS).
The lucrative rental contract is for storage and office space in Liptovsky Mikulas and is signed up to 2057 when the building will probably no longer even be standing (as if that wasn’t enough, there is even an extension option for an additional 49 years). The lucky company called Armagedon has seemingly been raking in some EUR 89,487 a month ever since, for a four-storey building that have only been used to store palettes.
The contract is ‘secured’ in the usual blatant way, meaning the state would have to pay a huge penalty to withdraw from the contract, namely 30% of the rent for the remaining period of tenure, which SME daily calculated at around EUR 14 million. Armageddon itself might come before this contract runs out.
