Fico stands by Minister Tomanová

Prime Minister Robert Fico said Viera Tomanová, Minister of Labour, Social Affairs and the Family, has his full trust.

On August 4, Fico said that when performing her post, the minister did not violate the law or moral principles, and that she appropriately performs the duties relating to her post.

Earlier this week, media reported that Tomanová's ministry approved a grant to a non-governmental organization where she worked before she took up her current position, even though it owes several million crowns in compulsory social insurance payments to social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa.

Fico said the uproar over the grant was due to the minister's pension reform plans.

The Pension Fund Management Companies Association (ADSS) is protesting against Fico's statements, in which he accused them of orchestrating the media scandal over Tomanová. ADSS chairman Peter Socha said the association did not think it was able to make journalists fall in line with ADSS wishes.
