The Special Prosecutor’s Office has ordered the Anti-Corruption Office to again examine a controversial tender, the SITA newswire reported, citing Zuzana Wienk of the Fair-Play Alliance transparency watchdog.
Last autumn, the office turned down a motion from the alliance, which had highlighted a suspected case of manipulation in a public procurement – a crime under Slovak law – in organising the tender. The case is said to have occurred in the autumn of 2009, when the Rescue and Transport Medical Service Bratislava purchased ambulances for €20 million.
