Slovakia’s ECB board member charged with bribery

Slovak prosecutors have charged Peter Kažimír, the nation’s central financial institution chief, who sits on the European Central Financial institution (ECB’s) board, with bribery in an previous case involving nationwide tax officers. “I do not feel guilty of any crime … nor I am aware of breaking the law,” he informed Reuters. The case follows a bribery affair in Latvia in 2018, when Riga barred its central financial institution governor from ECB conferences.
