Interior Ministry wants to see account balances of individuals and companies
The Interior Ministry plans to create a central registry with bank account information about individuals and companies. Most EU countries have such registries to fight money laundering and terrorism. Slovakia will most likely use the current system run by SBA, the local banking association, which is used by bailiffs. While the EU directive does not require such registries to hold information about account balances, the Interior Ministry wants to have such information at its disposal. RÚZ, a business lobby group, as well as SBA are protesting this.
