NKÚ says "room for corruption" created in EU funds scandal

The Supreme Control Office (NKÚ), a state-funded corruption watchdog, has said after the first phase of its investigation into Slovakia's use of European Union funds that "room for corruption was created".

Funds for Phare projects from the EU to Slovakia were temporarily suspended in April this year because of a scandal surrounding their possible misuse under the direction of a senior government official, Roland Tóth.

The EU has launched its own investigation into the affair, the results of which are expected in September.
