Czech billionaire Petr Kellner – the new owner of the media house PRO Plus, the broadcaster of POP TV and Kanal A – arrived in Slovenia on Thursday afternoon, according to the portal Necenzurirano.

Necenzurirano reported that Kellner is said to have met with Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, who has made clear his dissatisfaction with POP TV’s editorial policy.

However, the prime minister’s office did not want to comment when asked about Kellner’s visit, though Dnevnik reported that Kellner and Janša had been discussing Czech investments in Slovenian railways and oil companies.

Recently, Hungarian media company TV2 media bought Planet TV in Slovenia. (Željko Trkanjec |
