Ljubljana, 18 April (STA) - The government dismissed on Thursday the members of the supervisory board of the Slovenian Restitution Fund (SOD) and appointed a new board, acting head of the Government Communication Office Mitja Sevšek told the press after a cabinet session.
The new supervisors are Otmar Zorn, Roman Dobnikar, Samo Lozej, Nives Cesar, Stane Seničar and Aleksander Mervar.
The supervisors of the fund, which is managing state assets until the Slovenia Sovereign Holding is set up, are appointed by the government, which represents the state as the only shareholder.
Media have been speculating for a while whether an overhaul of the supervisory board will be followed by a replacement of the management.
Currently, the fund is led by an interim team comprised of Peter Ješovnik, Ig Gruden, both former members of the board of the abolished Capital Assets Management Agency (AUKN), and Nada Drobne Popovič, commercial director of a railway construction company.
The trio has been in charge since February, when the supervisory board dismissed CEO Tomaž Kuntarič and both management board members over disagreements regarding the shareholders' meeting of telco Telekom Slovenije.
