THE INVESTIGATION into the Sk5 million (€125,000) corruption scam involving Pavol Bielik, the Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) member, who is also the mayor of Rača, Bratislava, has been completed.
Investigators of the police force's anti-corruption bureau have proposed filing charges against Bielik. Spokeswoman for the prosecutor general, Svetlana Husárová told the SITA news agency October 12 that Bielik already knew of the investigators' findings.
The investigators have to deliver a proposal to file charges of corruption and violation of duties concerning the administration of public funds to the supervising prosecutor from the Special Prosecutions Office by October 15.
The prosecutor then has two weeks to decide over the matter.
Apart from the bribe, which Bielik is accused of demanding in return for issuing an approval for a reconstruction project in Rača, the district mayor also faces accusations over the unauthorized allocation of Sk750,000 (€18,750) for various projects.
