Slovak National Party (SNS) Chairman Ján Slota considers the case involving the tender at the Construction Ministry, which is headed by an SNS nominee, worth 3.6 billion, "fabricated and absolutely political."

"I do not know who is controlling the whole affair behind the scene," he said.

Slota said that Igor Štefanov, Director General of the Regional Development Support Agency, said that he asked the Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) to examine the tender on May 27, the SITA newswire wrote. ÚVO replied on July 3 that the public procurer acted in line with the law and no breach of the law, which would to a great extent influence the results of the public procurement, was discovered.

Janušek said that the announcement about the tender was on the Ministry's notice board from May 17-22. According to the minister, they proceeded in line with the law. Apart from the consortium of four companies, no other companies enrolled in the tender. Janušek denied the allegation that he did not provide information to the public or provided information too late. He thinks that the media do not understand EU funds. SITA
