Auditors propose to close state culture fund

The Czech Supreme Auditing Office on Monday proposed to abolish the State Culture Fund, along with other similar bodies, on the grounds that they fail to fulfil their missions. The auditing authority carried out inspections in the funds, set up to provide state support in various fields including housing, the environment, and cinema. The auditors discovered that over the last six years, the State Culture Fund has not paid a single grant for any cultural project, a spokeswoman for the auditing authority said.
