Czech PM Andrej Babiš said on Monday he would step down from a government council dealing with EU subsidies to avert any suspicion of conflict of interest over funds for his former business group. The Agrofert group receives EU subsidies in a combination of non-discretionary direct payments for farming and for business, environmental and other projects. Babiš put the group into trusts in 2017. However, his critics say he is still in control as the trusts are managed by his wife and lawyers.
