The governor of the Slovak import-export bank, Ladislav Vaškovič, has been implicated in a fraud, which cost the Všeobecná úverová banka (VÚB) Sk1.285 billion (€31 million), according to the Interior Ministry's chief investigator's department.

In three separate cases loans made by VÚB to Konsult Real for investments, which were not repaid. Vaškovič was a board member of both companies. Vaškovič believes that this is part of a long-term campaign against him, and that the loans were paid back early.

Two other officers of VÚB have also been implicated in the case.
