PM’s son testifies for six hours over subsidy fraud case

The son of Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, Andrej Babiš Jr., was questioned by police in Prague for over six hours on Monday in connection with a case surrounding a conference centre built by his father. The PM is facing charges of subsidy fraud in connection with the Stork’s Nest complex and his son was previously also charged over the matter, though his prosecution was later halted.

Andrej Babiš Jr. told journalists on Monday that his father had used him as a straw man in the matter. The ANO chief’s son has regularly publicly attacked him in recent months.
