FinMin says priority to ensure normal functioning of BAMC


In his first public comments since the government axed BAMC board president Lars Nyberg and CEO Tjorbjörn Mansson, Mramor said that BAMC has an important role to play in recouping taxpayer money invested in the bank bailout and helping get troubled companies back on their feet.

But he would not say directly whether it was his wish for Mansson to be fired along with Nyberg.

Prior to the decision of the government on 6 October, Mramor said he would propose the dismissal of Nyberg, while he was absent from the session at which Mansson was also recalled.

"The government's decisions are what they are," said Mramor when pressed about Mansson's recall.

He said the Finance Ministry was focusing on ensuring a smooth transition to the new management so that the ongoing processes of corporate restructuring in which BAMC is involved continue unabated.

"The key is that the institution functions well, this was also why a new management took over," he said.

Mramor would not comment on the allegations made by Nyberg after his dismissal that Mramor had told him in the summer that pressure had grown for Mansson to be fired nor Nyberg's letter to Prime Minister Miro Cerar alleging that the case of troubled financial conglomerate Sava "smells of corruption".
