Billionaire Krauze returns to Poland to face prosecutors questions

WARSAW (Thomson Financial) - Billionaire Ryszard Krauze, who controls several Warsaw-listed companies, returned to Poland last week to face questions in an investigation related to a political corruption row that led to the collapse of the last government.

'In the time set by the Warsaw court Ryszard Krauze arrived last Friday for questioning,' Prokom Investments spokesman Krzysztof Krol said.

Krazue, Poland's fifth richest man, stands accused of giving false testimony to investigators. He denies the charges.

Since August Krauze, who controls oil venture Petrolinvest as well as the blue-chip biotech company Bioton and builder Polnord, has remained abroad. Shares in his companies rose earlier this month on news that he would be returning to Poland before Christmas.

Poland continues airport capacity expansion

The Civil Aviation Office (ULC) has given permission for the construction of an airport in Świdnik, south-east Poland, with the Office president Grzegorz Kruszyński signing the declaration.

Piotr Jankowski, the press secretary of Lublin Airport, told Radio Lublin that the airport may be built after land has been acquired and plans have been verified.

Not all land designated for the airport has been bought by Port Lotniczy Lublin, the airport company, but intensive buying will commence as of New Year.

Jankowski has said that the declaration is valid for two years, in which all preparations need to be made for the final construction work to go ahead as planned.
