Csáky: Agriculture Minister should explain funding

AGRICULTURE Minister Zsolt Simon of the ruling Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) should explain the funding his company Agrotrade received from the ministry according to SMK's deputy chairman Pál Csáky.

Csáky said that the SMK should take an official stance towards the issue, the daily SME reported.

Agrotrade received millions in state subsidies for farmers from the ministry. The SMK chairman Béla Bugár said earlier that the SMK would not deal with the case because the funding was available to all farmers who requested it.

Deputy Agriculture Minister Marián Radošovský is in similar trouble. A company in which he is a partner, FaRM, also received state subsidies. Radošovský, who was nominated to the post by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), will have to explain the issue to his party peers at the upcoming meeting of the KDH's top board.
