The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office for Prosecuting Organized Crime and Corruption has opened a case after a media campaign following announcements about possible abuses when awarding grants following a public call from the Fund for Innovation and Technological Development.

The Prosecutor’s Office has announced that actions are underway to investigate possible criminal acts in the procedure after a public announcement calling for the financing of projects within the third pillar of the Plan for Economic Growth – the first investment step.

In most of the media, at the end of last week, were reports of 10.5 million euros of embezzlement from the Innovation Fund, which allegedly ended up with party donors and officials, appeared.
