Rusko fails to explain how he repaid his debts

ECONOMY Minister Pavol Rusko confirmed that he had signed several bills of exchange amounting to several millions of Slovak crowns.

Speaking at a press conference on August 2 the minister refused to give specific details and insisted that the debts have already been repaid. However, he failed to document this claim in any way.

According to the daily Pravda, Rusko signed at least ten bills of exchange, each for Sk9.5 million (€244,000). Allegedly, Rusko signed bills of exchange amounting to Sk104.5 million (€2.68 million) and gave them to a businessman called Ľubomír Blaška.

Rusko said that the bills of exchange were to guarantee loans to firms that are close to his interests. The minister added that he does not feel the need to explain himself to journalists and repeated that he repaid all his debts a year ago.
