Veriteľ suspected of corruption

The Finance Ministry has completed a report on the Veriteľ company that suggests corruption might have played a role in settling debts in the healthcare sector, the Sme daily wrote on October 23.

The state-owned company Veriteľ, set up under the former government exclusively to settle debts in the healthcare sector, ceased operations last year.

As for the suspicions of corruption, the Finance Ministry filed a criminal complaint against a liquidator of Veriteľ.

Former health minister Rudolf Zajac denies the corruption allegations, saying Veriteľ was constantly under the supervision of the National Supervision Office.

However, the daily mentioned a case where it appeared that Veriteľ representatives demanded certain percentages for settling claims. Zajac claimed that nobody got the money and only the state would save the funds.
