Speaker of Parliament Sulík presents €640 invoice for his dinner flight to Salzburg

The Speaker of Slovak Parliament and leader of the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS), Richard Sulík, presented an invoice for his recent controversial flight to Salzburg showing that he paid €640, the TASR newswire wrote. Sulík told journalists that he could imagine going on another such trip in the future. “We’ll see what the future brings. I didn’t do anything bad; it was on my own time from my own money. I don’t see any reason why, when the time is right, I shouldn’t be able to repeat it,” he said, as quoted by TASR.

The Speaker of Slovak Parliament and leader of the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS), Richard Sulík, presented an invoice for his recent controversial flight to Salzburg showing that he paid €640, the TASR newswire wrote.

Sulík told journalists that he could imagine going on another such trip in the future. “We’ll see what the future brings. I didn’t do anything bad; it was on my own time from my own money. I don’t see any reason why, when the time is right, I shouldn’t be able to repeat it,” he said, as quoted by TASR.

“My annual income is €150,000; it’s taxed and legitimate, so I don’t understand why I can’t afford an extravagance worth €640 once in a while,” he stated.

The parliamentary committee for conflict of interests launched proceedings against Sulík last week, demanding that he submit an invoice for the flight or face losing a year’s salary.

“I know that the invoice will be enough; I asked the chair of the committee Renáta Zmajkovičová (Smer),” said Sulík.

According to information presented in the media, Sulík flew to the Austrian city on a private jet that is owned by a company close to entrepreneur Vladimir Poor. A total of six passengers and two pilots were on board the flight which took the group to a private dinner.
