Lawmakers want sports organizations to be under closer scrutiny in use of subsidies

Deputies and senators on the National Sports Agency's oversight committee are demanding that the agency does a better job of scrutinizing the way sports organisations use subsidies. They also want the sports agency to hire more inspectors to keep an eye on financing. The demand was made in response to a massive subsidy fraud scandal in the Czech Tennis Federation. Ten people including the federation’s president have been charged with fraud involving millions of crowns in state subsidies intended for tennis and youth sports organizations.
