According to the SDKÚ opposition party, the amount that the government of Prime Minister Robert Fico has wasted in corruption and cronyism since it came into office in June 2006 climbed to almost €3 billion, the SITA newswire reported.
SDKÚ vice-chairman and former Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš called a news conference on August 3 to advise about an update to its website, www.ukradli.sk, where the SDKÚ records what it calls scandals of the current government.
Thirteen new cases were added to the original 32 on the website, such as the controversy around the state-run forestry company Lesy SR, money transferred from the state-run agency Veriteľ to settle debts of the healthcare sector, a subsidy for a private ski resort at Kubínska Hola, and construction of a new National Football Stadium, among others.
