Testimony to continue in libel case taken by Finance Minister Babiš over StB allegations

Testimony will continue on Monday in a court case the finance minister of the Czech Republic, Andrej Babiš, has taken in an attempt to refute allegations he collaborated with the StB secret police in the communist era. Mr. Babiš has taken a libel case against the Nation’s Memory Institute in his native Slovakia, whose files list him as an StB agent. The politician and billionaire businessman denies the allegation. Two former StB agents are due in court in Bratislava but a verdict is not expected today.
