Speculation has emerged that the prime minister’s nominee for the post of labour minister, Jana Maláčová, may have been implicated in suspected irregularities in the distribution of grants at the ministry.
A former deputy at the Labour and Social Affairs Ministry said Maláčová had been involved in a case that was now under investigation.
The former labour minister Jaroslava Nemcova has denied that she had pressed charges against Malacova in connection with the irregularities uncovered, saying that the respective audit had found fault with the work of whole departments, without naming any individuals. Maláčová herself has not responded to the accusations.
