Finance Minister Kalousek angered by Kroll report

16-07-2008

This part of the Kroll report has angered Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek since it suggests that Mr. Čunek successfully lobbied for a Vsetín armament company at the time when Mr. Kalousek was defense minister. Minister Kalousek categorically rejected the idea that he or any of his subordinates had negotiated with Jiří Čunek at the time and ruled out that Mr. Čunek had been in a position to influence any armament contract or obtain sensitive information on the subject. The finance minister said he was considering legal steps against the Kroll detective agency.
