Okamura ordered to apologise for migrant-related comments on MEPs

Tomio Okamura, the opposition Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) leader and a deputy head of the Czech Chamber of Deputies, has to apologise to MEP Tomas Zdechovsky and former MEP Pavel Svoboda for making untrue migrant-related comments on them, a Prague district court has ruled.

EPP Group calls for new mechanism to report fraud on agriculture subsidies

EPP Group calls for new mechanism to report fraud on agriculture subsidies

The European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) investigation into fraud in EU agricultural payments in Slovakia confirms the need for a direct EU oversight over land grabbing and the misconduct of national authorities. Tomáš Zdechovský MEP, the EPP Group's Spokesman in Parliament's Budgetary Control Committee, said: “If national authorities do not act, the EU must. The conclusion of the OLAF investigation initiated by the EPP Group shows how the system of allocating EU agricultural funds worked during the Slovak Socialist governments in the past. The state was complicit with fraudsters receiving direct payments on land other than agricultural land or even illegally-obtained land. There must be no more such cases of injustice for those who really have the right to EU help.”

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
