The Zlín branch of the Brno Regional Prosecutor’s Office has filed a lawsuit against six individuals and four legal persons for having allegedly illegally used European subsidies worth tens of millions of crowns.
The main suspect is a 57-year-old man who works for an organisation that facilitates the drawing of EU subsidies, which in this case went towards constructing accommodation in the Zlín region, a spokesperson for the Prosecutor’s Office said.
An investigation into the alleged illegal activity had been underway since 2014. If found guilty, the suspects face up to 12 years in prison.
