Finance Minister Brigita Schmognerová is to appear before the European Parliament’s budget committee next week to argue that 15 million euros in funding that was frozen last week should be released given Slovakia’s recent efforts to improve financial controls. The money was stopped after the EP became dissatisfied with the speed and intensity of a Slovak investigation of possible misuse of EU funds by a Government Office official.
