Bakala interested in buying Polish dailies

Zdeněk Bakala, one of the Czech Republic's richest businessmen and owner of the media company Respekt Media, wants to buy the Polish dailies Rzecpospolita and Parkiet. Mr Bakala said his vision was to establish a large, diverse multimedia company in central and Eastern Europe. Respekt Media, publisher of the liberal weekly Respekt, has already submitted its offer to the Polish finance ministry, the majority-owner of the two Polish dailies.
