Opposition alleges Fico is involved in arms trade

THE DEPUTY CHAIRMAN of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, Ivan Mikloš, said recent statements by Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek regarding corruption in arms deals imply the involvement of the ruling Smer party and the prime minister in the arms trade.

He said that out of the five businessmen who accompanied Prime Minister Robert Fico to Israel in March, four are active in the defence industry.

However, Smer MP Boris Zala said that Mikloš's arguments are absurd. He said if the comments were taken seriously, the government would not be able to support any branch of economy because the opposition links them all to corruption.
