MPs demand STV be investigated


The parliamentary media council has demanded the financial police investigate contracts at the STV public television station, which according to a state watchdog broke laws on advertising, budgeting and the administration of public property under the 1998-2002 management of STV director Milan Materák.

The MPs, basing their demands on a report by the supreme audit office, say that the station frequently awarded suspicious contracts to firms with offices listed in open fields, and whose officers are untraceable.

MP František Mikloško, of the ruling coalition Christian Democrats, said he would resign his mandate if the police did not investigate.
