FORMER CZECH PM ANDREJ BABIŠ GOES ON TRIAL IN $2 MILLION EU SUBSIDY FRAUD CASE

On 12 September, the Guardian reported that Babiš, a billionaire tycoon, is accused of illicitly obtaining €2 million in EU small business funds for the development of a hotel and conference centre when it was ineligible for such financial aid because it was part of his multi-industry Agrofert business empire, which controls vast tracts of the Czech economy.  The trial follows a 7-year police investigation into events dating back to 2007 that have been the subject of a report by the EU’s anti-fraud unit, OLAF, which ended in 2018.
