Jozef Burian, the chairman of parliament's Finance, Budget and Currency Committee, said on August 6 that he would submit a motion to the Audit Surveillance Office, requesting the office deal with possible mistakes in auditing the HZDS and KDH’s annual reports.

In order to prevent discrepancies, Burian will call a meeting with the Slovak Chamber of Auditors, the TASR newswire wrote, and propose that the auditors who made a mistake in the past be excluded.

HZDS and KDH, Burian said, have acknowledged it was a mistake to receive the gifts. HZDS informed the Finance Committee that the gift from Transpetrol, partially owned by the state, amounting to Sk50,000 (€1,660), as well as the gift amounting to Sk50,000 (€1,660) from Brantner Nova, the company partially owned by the town of Spisska Nova Ves (Kosice region), were returned. KDH returned the gift from Brantner Nova, amounting to Sk50,000 (€1,660), as well.

According to Burian, the Committee will now submit the materials to the Finance Ministry, which, can decide on the sanctions for the concerned political parties. Burian noted that if the auditors had warned HZDS and KDH that they were breaking the law, both parties would have returned the money earlier. TASR
