Motion filed against Smer MP Vaľová over conflict of interest

The parliamentary committee for conflicts of interest is dealing with a motion against Smer MP and mayor of Humenné Jana Vaľová. She was self-employed until June 1 of this year and a parliamentary deputy at the same time (since July 2006), which is at odds with the Conflict of Interests Act, the Sme daily wrote on Saturday, August 24.

If the charge is valid, Vaľová could be stripped of six months’ salary, equalling €12,000, committee chair Miroslav Beblavý told Sme.

“The motion will be discussed by the committee at its next session, on September 10,” Beblavý told the SITA newswire. The motion against Vaľová was filed by the civic association Daňová reforma a spoločenský rozvoj (Tax Reform and Social Development) and the GINN publisher of periodical media, and was signed by Martin Daňo.
