Novinky: State attorney questions police’s findings in Babiš case

State attorney Jaroslav Šaroch has questioned the police’s findings in the case of acting prime minister Andrej Babiš, the news site Novinky.cz reported on Sunday. Last week Mr. Šaroch rejected a petition from Mr. Babiš and six others facing fraud charges, who argued that the case against them was unfounded.

While the state attorney rejected their claim, he also wrote that the police’s conclusions were “not final and need not be completely credible”, Novinky.cz wrote, quoting Mr. Šaroch’s statement.

ANO leader Babiš is one of a number of people accused of abusing around CZK 50 million in European Union subsidies in connection with the Stork’s Nest complex near Prague. The acting PM denies any wrongdoing and describes the charges as fabricated.
