Head of the cartel department at the Antimonopoly Office (PMÚ) Peter Demčák and some of his colleagues were forced to leave their jobs, the Denník N daily reported on September 14.

The PMÚ, however, has appeared in the media frequently especially over the past few months, thanks to scrutinising the cartel agreements signed between construction firms building the emergency at Košice hospital, companies issuing meal vouchers or firms attending the IT competitions launched by the self-governing regions. These have been the biggest issues the cartel department has been working on, the daily wrote.

PMÚ head Tibor Menyhart (Most-Híd) said in a recent interview with Denník N that they does not feel any political pressure.

“If it is a businessman whom we suspect of being a member of collusion or some illegal deal, we follow the law,” Menyhart said, adding he has never been invited to explain the steps.

It seems, however, that the situation has changed as Demčák leaves. The employees disagree with and protest against this step, the daily wrote.
