Economy Minister Miškov proposes that Bubeníková be dismissed

Prime Minister Iveta Radičová received a written proposal from Economy Minister Juraj Miškov on January 5 requesting the dismissal of Anna Bubeníková, the head of the executive board of Slovakia’s National Property Fund (FNM), the TASR newswire reported. Miškov had already expressed reservations about Bubeníková in December according to information appearing on the internet. The alleged transcripts of the wiretapping carried out by the Slovak Information Service (SIS) intelligence service, known as the Gorila file, that indicate alleged corruption by Bubeníková and her cooperation with the Penta financial group are the basis for Miškov’s proposal . Penta has denied the information reported in the media but other people have claimed that the transcribed dialogues are authentic. "Even though the accusations haven't been proven yet by the official investigation, they are so serious that they can't be overlooked from the political perspective. One of the main priorities of this government was uncompromised combating of corruption, and that's why I believe that such serious suspicions won't remain unnoticed," Miškov stated on January 4, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The government will discuss Miškov's proposal at its upcoming session on January 11.
