PM relaxed about misuse of ministerial perks

Prime Minister Robert Fico did not officially reprimand his ministers at the cabinet session on April 4 for abusing ministerial perks. After the cabinet's session, he only reminded them that with regard to the social situation of people in Slovakia, they should use benefits associated with their office sensitively.

His words met with various reactions. Culture Minister Marek Maďarič did not notice any warning. Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák heard that they should take a sensitive approach towards these issues. Agriculture Minister Miroslav Jurena saw that the Prime Minister raised his finger. Justice Minister Štefan Harabin, whose family stirred the scandal by using a ministerial car, reiterated that he did not breach any law.
