Radičová calls on Tax Directorate head to take responsibility for rental controversy

Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, after reviewing information regarding the rental of premises for the Tax Directorate in Košice, called on the head of the Tax Directorate, Miroslav Mikulčík to take political responsibility, the Government Office press department said in a statement released on April 15, the TASR newswire reported. "The premier has initiated a Government Office probe at the Tax Directorate and requested that the Speaker of Parliament [Richard Sulík] submit a proposal to the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) to carry out an inspection," reads the statement, as quoted by TASR. According to Radičová, the Tax Directorate saved money by signing a more advantageous contract than the one sealed with a different company under the former government.

According to Radičová, the Tax Directorate saved money by signing a more advantageous contract than the one sealed with a different company under the former government.

"However, a mistake was that the Directorate continued in the course of selecting a provider that was employed by Robert Fico's government, which raised suspicions," said Radičová.

The prime minister welcomed the fact that Nitra Invest, which is co-owned by the SDKÚ district chief in Nitra, Ondrej Ščurka, terminated the rental contract with the Tax Directorate in Košice on April 15.
