Pellegrini said the reasons behind the audit are the relatively high numbers of invoices received.

"I don't think that we can say without any shadow of a doubt what kind of invoices we're dealing with and what exactly it is that the Finance Ministry should pay for," he stated, as quoted by TASR.

He did not specify the sum involved in the invoices and said an independent institution will be tasked with carrying out the audit. "Based on its findings, we'll be able to take further steps," Pellegrini stated.
