A watchdog group has lodged a complaint with the European Commission over concerns that Czech PM Andrej Babiš may be violating EU budget conflict-of-interest rules. In an open letter, Transparency International’s Czech chapter argued Wednesday that although Babiš, who built a business empire before entering politics, is no longer the formal owner of conglomerate Agrofert, he is still “the founder and 100% end-user of benefits” of the two trusts overseeing the firm.
