According to the committee’s unanimous decision, Sulík must submit an invoice for the flight to the committee or he may be penalised by losing a year’s salary. Based on information presented in the media, Sulík recently flew to the Austrian city of Salzburg onboard a private jet that is owned by a company close to entrepreneur Vladimír Póor, an alleged sponsor of the opposition Smer party.

A total of six passengers and two pilots were onboard the flight, which took the group to a private dinner. At first, Sulík did not want to reveal any details about the trip. Later he claimed that he paid for the flight, which cost around €750.

“From time to time, I can afford such an extravagance,” he said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
