Head of Supreme Audit Office: Team already examining solar business

An investigation has begun into a controversial state scheme to support solar power, the TV station Prima Family has reported. In a speech to the lower house on Tuesday, President Miloš Zeman said that “solar barons” had cheated the state out of around CZK 200 billion and called for the establishment of a commission to look into what he called the greatest robbery in the country’s history. Miloslav Kala, the head of the Supreme Audit Office, told Prima Family that such a team already existed; as well as Mr. Kala, it includes representatives of the judiciary, the secret services and other agencies.
