An Interior Ministry inspection has revealed wasted funds totalling some €500,000 in contracts the Defence Ministry made with the firm Pegas Top. Inspectors continue to look into the case, the daily Sme reported on July 27.

A spokesperson for Defence Minister Martin Glváč said that the ex-director of the ministerial office had disrespected the minister’s orders when concluding appendices. According to her, a low-ranking servant was preparing changes to the existing contract under the pressure of former head of the office, as reported by Sme.

The Defence Ministry is now judging costs and sales for the work that has already been executed. If illegality if found, the ministry will expand the already filed criminal complaint, Balleková told Sme.

The firm of Anton Pecháč, an army reservist, did cleaning for the ministry already in the era of Juraj Liška, nominated by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Jaroslav Baška of Smer and Ľubomír Galko of Freedom and Solidarity (SaS). Pecháč said he only knows Glváč from television.
