Central Bohemia region calls for voluntary return of Stork’s Nest funding

The grants authority for Central Bohemia has called for a subsidiary of the Agrofert company to voluntary return the EU funds given in the so-called Stork’s Nest affair. The request was made public on Thursday. The request has been sent to the Imoba company, which originally received the funds.

ANO leader and prime minister Andrej Babiš faces criminal proceedings for fraud for the 50 million euros received for the hotel and recreation centre. The EU funds should have been directed to small and medium sized companies and not a massive agro-chemical group the size of Babiš’ Agrofert.
