Police in eastern Slovakia arrested influential businessman Mikuláš V. in the early hours of Tuesday, March 1, on suspicion of committing VAT fraud amounting to almost €29 million, Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic said at a press conference later the same day.

"The suspect has been charged with the crime of VAT fraud committed via fictitious dealings in fictitious goods," Lipšic said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The state paid a total of €32.7 million to Mikuláš V. between 2007 and 2010. "It's quite possible that the charges will be extended by more counts," Lipšic said.
