Senec sport club: Cabinet Office allegedly took bribes
20 Sep 2012 Flash News
Former vice chairman of the SFM Sports Club Senec, Miroslav Moravský, told the Hospodárske noviny daily that the Cabinet Office accepted a bribe - through an unnamed person - of 3.2 million Slovak crowns from the then-club's chairman Alexander Matlák. Moravský claims this happened during the first government of Prime Minister Robert Fico.
The administrators of the Norway and European Economic Area (EEA) Grants system now say that fraudulent use of funds provided by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to co-finance the construction of a sports stadium in Senec means that all the money they had donated must now be returned.
The sports club and civic association SFM Senec, the author of the project, submitted a fraudulent bank statement to the Slovak Government Office, which is the contact point for Norway and EEA Grants. The Office for the Fight Against Corruption, a police unit, obtained the original bank statements directly from the branch at which SFM Senec held its account. Comparison of the documents revealed that €62,000 was not transferred to the account of a supplier in the way that SFM Senec had declared, but was instead withdrawn in cash from the project account, the Cabinet Office told the SITA newswire.
The Cabinet Office filed a criminal motion on Wednesday, September 19. Hospodárske noviny wrote.
