Mečiar prosecution should be shelved, prosecutor says

A state prosecutor handling the investigation of former Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar for allegedly authorising illegal bonus payments to members of cabinet from 1993 to 1998 has again recommended that the case be dropped.

Mečiar allegedly approved 13.7 million Slovak crowns in end-year performances to his cabinet colleagues despite having been informed by a state watchdog body that the law did not entitle the cabinet to such bonuses.
