As a result of standard supervision activities of prosecutor’s office over the local parliament, ten politicians may lose mandates for employing spouses as their parliamentary assistants.
The parliament members did not only hire their wives, they granted them also with unjustified high salaries and signed off manipulated time sheets. Apparently the assistants spent a large amount of time on private trips and holidays abroad without reporting the absence time to the employer.
The prosecutor’s office informed the ethic commission of the parliament and asked to remove the mandates, but the request was only noted without action. Now the prosecutors filed a lawsuit to the court.
