President criticised over 'golden gates'

President Rudolf Schuster again fell afoul of critics last week after an investigation by the Supreme Control Office showed that his office had violated the Law on Budgetary Principles by having part of the Presidential Palace gates and rear garden fence coated with gold plating. The coating, carried out in 2000 by the Reštart firm, cost 376,000 crowns ($7,500).

The Law on Budgetary Principles states that all public expenditures must secure maximum economy and efficiency.
