Czech EU commissioner scolded for Stork’s Nest comments

The Czech Republic’s EU Commissioner Věra Jourová has been wrapped over the knuckles by the European Union’s Ombudswoman.

She said that in radio interview over the so-called Stork’s Nest affair and on other occasions Jourová made comments which were inappropriate with her post as a European Commissioner and she would have been wiser not to have commented according to Emily O’ Reilly.

The Stork’s Nest affair focuses on alleged abuse of EU subsidies by ANO leader and outgoing Czech prime minister Andrej Babiš. Jourová was an ANO nominated minister before being appointed Czech commissioner.
