On January 22, the Pravda daily reported that Defense Ministry František Kašický intends to punish those responsible for inflating a tender for cleaning army barracks.

One of those facing dismissal is Vladimír Vasko, who administered the tenders. The ministry faces criticism for two other tenders: for mowing grass and snow removal. All three suspicious tenders would have meant losses of Sk4 billion.

The minister has said he will not make any moves until an internal investigation is completed, which should happen by the end of this week. SITA
