Lowe House calls on Finance Minister Babiš to dispel suspicion of tax evasion

15-03-2017

Finance Minister and ANO party leader Andrej Babiš should dispel the suspicion of tax evasion by the end of April, the Chamber of Deputies agreed during its session on Wednesday. Mr Babiš should also “plausibly” explain how he had funded the purchase of bonds in his company Agrofert, the lower house said in its resolution, pushed through by the Christian Democratic Party. If he fails to do so, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka should take appropriate measures, the deputies concluded. Mr Babiš, who attended the session, has rejected the allegations, adding that he didn’t need to explain himself.
