The parliamentary Conflict of Interests Committee has begun looking into a complaint concerning coalition Slovak National Party (SNS) leader Ján Slota that was submitted by Transparency International Slovakia (TIS) on October 13, committee chairman Gábor Gál told the TASR newswire on October 22.

The complaint concerns Slota's use of a helicopter owned by a private company to travel to the unveiling of a Lorraine Cross in Pavlovce (Prešov region). According to Gál, Slota abused his post by accepting a gift, for which he could receive a fine equaling his annual salary as an MP. The committee is now waiting for comments from Slota and the company in order to decide on further steps, Gál said. TASR
