Opposition MP and former finance minister Ivan Mikloš infuriated Prime Minister Robert Fico over the weekend by criticising the high level of corruption under the current government in a televised political debate.
Fico snapped that Mikloš should “shut up and enjoy his freedom,” the SITA newswire wrote.
"It is necessary to look at who is speaking and what he is saying,” he said. “This is the man who was in charge of the privatisation process for eight years and is responsible for the worst privatisation transgressions."
He said the government will react to Mikloš's statements with legal action. SITA
