SaS and Most-Híd refuse to dismiss their state secretaries

Most-Híd representatives don’t need to defend Transport Ministry State Secretary (i.e. deputy minister) Ivan Švejna before the Coalition Council because he has done nothing wrong, Most-Híd chairman Béla Bugár said on Tuesday, September 21, prior to a session of the Coalition Council.

Most-Híd representatives don’t need to defend Transport Ministry State Secretary (i.e. deputy minister) Ivan Švejna before the Coalition Council because he has done nothing wrong, Most-Híd chairman Béla Bugár said on Tuesday, September 21, prior to a session of the Coalition Council.

Bugár was referring to the Hayek Consulting Group case. “There’s no reason for us to defend him. He has done nothing wrong, everything is absolutely okay,” said Bugár. His opinion was echoed by Culture Minister Daniel Krajcer (SaS) regarding the conduct of Economy Ministry State Secretary Martin Chren (SaS).

“My stance is unequivocal: no violation of the law took place. It’s all clear to see,” said Krajcer on behalf of his party. However, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová maintains that there was a conflict of interest in the case. SaS, whose chairman Richard Sulík did not take part in the session due to his being abroad, has already proclaimed that the Hayek Group case is a closed issue. Sulík told Radičová recently that SaS sees no reason to dismiss Chren from his post.
