THE public Slovak Television (STV) station will undergo a “super audit” of its financial records, the Hospodárske Noviny economic daily wrote.

The Supreme Audit Office announced it will examine the station’s records for any signs of waste.
KDH MP Pavol Abrhan, chairman of the parliamentary committee on media, told the media that STV’s management is confident about its methods for allocating resources, but has agreed to the audit.
