National vehicle registration system suffers 3-hour fallout

The national vehicle registration system was out of operation for over three hours on Friday morning, the CTK news agency reports. According to the Transport Ministry the problem was not linked to the system itself but was due to a failure between the system and the police data base to which it is connected. The new system which is linked to the Schengen database has been dogged by problems since it was introduced in July of last year. As of April the system changed hands and is now being administered by ICT and Telephonica.
