Police accuse him of taking a bribe of €30,000 for mediating a €1.6-million state subsidy to support the construction of a sports complex meant to host next year’s Biathlon World Championship. He allegedly accepted the money in an office used by the company constructing the complex on June 29 of this year. Police detained him after he had received the money; he was taken into custody but has denied committing any crime.
