Babiš to meet with EC President Juncker this week


Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš will meet with the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, on Thursday, news website iRozhlas reports, citing the spokeswoman of the EC president, Mina Andreeva.

Two weeks ago, the Czech prime minister said he would personally bring up a preliminary EC audit, which found him in a conflict of interest, with Mr. Juncker and ask about its authors, whom he called “incompetent”.

However, Ms. Andreeva did not confirm the meeting would revolve around the audit’s findings, stating instead that the agenda was unspecified and that the two leaders would be preparing for the next European Council meeting.
