Police investigate Procházka’s presidential campaign financing

THE POLICE are looking into suspicions over murky financing in Radoslav Procházka’s presidential campaign, the Nový Čas daily reported on September 2.

According to the daily, General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár has questioned both Procházka and Igor Matovič, who first informed the public about problems with the former’s campaign financing. Čižnár subsequently handed a file pertaining to the case to the police. No one in the case has been accused yet, the daily wrote, as cited by the TASR newswire.

Spokesperson for the Police Corps Presidium Michal Slivka told the TA3 news channel that the file submitted to the police by the general prosecutor pertained to suspicions of avoiding taxes and insurance.

Matovič publicly claimed in early June that Procházka attempted to purchase advertising for his failed presidential campaign from his company Regionpress off the books. A recording published anonymously on the internet on July 22 features Procházka’s voice saying “half-a-million euros” in response to Matovič’s question about how much he had spent on his presidential campaign. Yet, Procházka publicly declared his campaign spending at €250,000. The recording contains segments of a discussion between Procházka and Matovič, which Procházka has since insisted was heavily cut and edited by “DJ Matovič”.
