Brussels warned of widening EU funds investigation

Deputy Prime Minister for Integration Mária Kadlečíková said yesterday she had sent a letter to Brussels concerning the ‘wider implications’ of a May scandal involving possible corruption in the use of EU funds for Slovakia. While she would not comment on the contents of the letter, she indicated the investigation of the case showed that not only Slovaks may have been involved in suspected Phare funding abuse. “I think they [Brussels] will know what to do with it [the letter],” she said.
