MSp not to review Babiš’s conflict of interests

(ČIA) The Czech Ministry of Justice (MSp) will not start another review proceeding on the decision of the Central Bohemia Region regarding the conflict of interests of Andrej Babiš (ANO). The new (second) instigation submitted by Transparency International (TI) on August 20, 2020, complemented with a notice of the public prosecutor’s office, does not contain any new findings, but only summarises the earlier reviewed conclusions. Justice Minister Marie Benešová (for ANO) said that TI’s statements were misleading and without factual argumentation and that the instigation was prepared with ignorance of the law. She added that if the Ministry granted TI’s request, it would be breaching the law.
