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.
MPs have requested that the station, which announced earlier this year that it is heavily in debt, turn over detailed data related to its performance, personnel policy and its contracts.
