Babiš promises audits but refuses to apologise to Czech Television

Finance Minister Andrej Babiš says he has commissioned two independent audits of his revenues and will make the results public. Speaking on Czech Television on Tuesday night, the ANO chief and billionaire also refused to apologise for calling journalists from an investigative show on the station corrupt. Mr. Babiš said all those who had criticised him should also have their incomes audited. Attention has been focused on how Mr. Babiš raised the funds to purchase bonds in his company Agrofert in 2013. He says he will file complaints against Czech Television over what he calls its manipulated reporting of his business affairs.
