Minister Tomanová scrutinised

THE LABOUR Ministry approved a subsidy of Sk1.5 million for the non-governmental organisation where Labour Minister Viera Tomanová worked before becoming a state official.

THE LABOUR Ministry approved a subsidy of Sk1.5 million for the non-governmental organisation where Labour Minister Viera Tomanová worked before becoming a state official.

The private social-services centre Privilégium was approved to receive the funds last October despite owing more than Sk17.3 million to the Sociálna Poisťovňa public social insurance company, the Sme daily reported.

The opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) said it would initiate a move to have Tomanová dismissed at the opposition's next meeting. Klára Sárközy of the SMK said that former labour minister Ľudovít Kaník resigned after a similar situation concerning conflict of interest.

The ruling coalition Smer party said Tomanová has the full support of Prime Minister Robert Fico. Smer said that the information on Tomanová's connections with the Privilégium organisation is part of a smear campaign against the minister, the SITA newswire wrote.
