An opposition MP has accused Labor Minister Viera Tomanová of depriving the country of almost Sk200 million in Euro funds from the Single Program Document Target 3 program.

MP Štefan Kuzma (SDKÚ-DS) says the EUR 6.8 million would have gone for education and training, and that labour offices and the private sector had applied for the funds in 2005, but the Labour Ministry failed to draw on them by the end of 2007.

The same is true for about half of the other projects depending on EU funds, Kuzma told a news conference in Prešov, and Brussels will not refund the money. Therefore, any projects already implemented will have to be paid for via the state budget. SITA
