The European Commission has halted the payments which were allocated for the 2007-2013 programming period. This concerns five operational programmes focused on informatisation of society, health care, funds for Bratislava Region, research and development, and cross-border cooperation between Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The exact sum has not been specified yet, the SITA newswire reported.

“The respective supervising bodies are fully responsible for adopting corrections and preventive measures as well as for communicating with the European Commission on unblocking the payments,” Monika Hucáková, spokesperson for the Deputy PM for Investments and Informatisation, told the SITA newswire.
