"This kind of behavior of the financial management personnel is unacceptable, and therefore I asked the President of the Financial Administration to solve this problem immediately. A new financial act has been adopted that provides for higher wages to its employees and has a higher level of responsibility.
Therefore, I demand immediate and maximum punishment for the culprit, responsible solution and systematic measures by the leadership. The financial management should be a professional institution where we do not suffer from extortion of bribes", - the Minister of Finance of Slovakia Petro Kazimir said after the meeting with the head of the customs of Slovakia
