Matjaz Merkan, the president of the management board of Telekom Slovenije, has resigned after less than two months and with immediate effect.
According to the company, his position will be taken over by Tomaz Seljak, the VP of the management board, until the appointment of a successor.
It adds that Matjaz Merkan has decided to resign for purely personal reasons and both he and the company “reject all others statements or speculations that have cropped up in the media”.
Broadband TV News understands these include that he refused to launch an enquiry into his predecessor Rudolf Skobe.
Under Skobe’s leadership, Telekom Slovenije was ordered by an arbitration tribunal to pay €17.6 million to Greece’s Antenna Group, which wants to exit a joint venture operating a TV channel in Slovenia.
