Mečiar declares assets

VLADIMÍR Mečiar, leader of the strongest parliamentary party, the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia party (HZDS), has finally submitted an asset declaration to the legislature, becoming the last of 150 members to do so.

The three-time Slovak prime minister has been asked by the financial police to explain an invoice for over Sk41 million ($1 million), allegedly for restoration work on his Elektra villa in west Slovakia's Trenčianské Teplice. Police believe the money could not have been earned from his political posts and legal income.

The asset declaration is to remain classified unless Mečiar decides to make it public.
