Fico recalled that opposition deputies accused Finance Minister Ján Počiatek of leaking in advance the conversion rate of the Slovak currency against the euro.

"However, this turned out to be a lie," he said. He claims that lies were spread also around the Tipos case. "If you wrongly accuse somebody, I would expect you to apologise afterwards," he said. SITA
