The investigation of the infamous bulletin board tender has wrapped up. The investigator has prepared a proposal to begin prosecution, Police President Tibor Gašpar said on January 28. The prosecution will decide whether to bring the case to court.

The case, which occurred during the 2006-2010 Fico government, involved an announcement of a €120-million tender for supplying the then Construction Ministry with various legal and advertising services co-financed by EU funds, placed only on a bulletin board in a corridor at the ministry, then under the remit of the Slovak National Party (SNS). The tender was won by businesses with links to SNS party leader Ján Slota, and the money spent on the project later had to be repaid by the state to Brussels.
