State audit office finds irregularities at five national minority self-governments
Budapest, September 24 (MTI) – The State Audit Office (ASZ) found irregularities in the finances of five out of the 13 national minority self-governments it screened for the first time, for the period between 2010 and the first half of 2014, the ASZ said on Thursday.
The authority has detected shortcomings related to the entire internal controls at the Bulgarian, Polish, Romanian and Ruthenian national self-governments and to parts of the internal controls at the German self-government, the office said in a statement.
The ASZ further identified irregularities in risk and asset management at all of the five organisations.
Shortfalls have been found in the administration of budget allocations at the Bulgarian, Polish and Ruthenian self-governments.
The audit office sent its recommendations to all five national self-governments that have 30 days under law to prepare an action plan to correct the shortfalls, which ASZ will later examine.
