On June 23 , Prime Minister Robert Fico held a press conference to announce that he would not accept Finance Minister Ján Počiatek’s resignation, the SITA newswire wrote.
He also rejected any allegations that information was leaked about the revaluing of the central parity of the Slovak crown to the euro. Suspicions of a leak started to surface after a spike in trading activity on the Slovak FOREX market on May 28, ahead of the revaluing.
Opposition MP and former finance minister Ivan Mikloš accused J&T and Istrokapital of profiting from these transactions through inside information. SITA
