Šárka Kuželová: Prague will check the cooperation of the spokespersons of the United Forces with the city company
The server reported that Kuželová, who is in the 47th place of the Prague candidate of the STAN movement for the September elections, concluded a consulting contract with TCP in 2020. At the same time, through her company or as an individual, she donated hundreds of thousands of crowns to TOP 09 and STAN since 2019.
Chabr said that based on information from the media, he requested the convening of TCP’s supervisory board. “He will check the contract between TCP and Mrs. Kuželová and the facts regarding the content of the work and the output of the performance for the company. I consider the suspicions raised to be serious and everything needs to be investigated and explained,” he said.
Mushroom is similarly provided. “I will forward the whole matter to the pirate representatives on the TCP Supervisory Board for review. Municipal companies should try to avoid a situation where they are invoiced by a business entity sponsoring a political party that is directly responsible for the management of this company,” he said. He added that he is preparing for the municipality digitization of procurement procedures, which will contain control mechanisms preventing similar situations.
Kuželová: I can document my income
She rejected the causality between working for TCP and donations. “I have been working with the TCP company since 2019 as part of my work for the councilor (Chabra), but after that there was enough work for TCP outside of the councilor’s assignment that it was appropriate to contract this work“, CTK reported. She added that the work consisted of writing press releases and PR articles, arranging press conferences, communicating with journalists, communicating with entrepreneurs on the banks or crisis communication, for example in the event of impending floods or the covid-19 pandemic.
According to Kuželová, the party’s donations related to election projects, i.e. to the United States for Prague in 2018, to Spolu this year and to PirSTAN last year. “I definitely refuse to get a job in a city company and then return an average of twenty thousand of these donations,” stated that, for example, she gave a donation of 460,000 crowns in 2019 and concluded the contract with TCP at the end of April 2020. “The timing of this speculation does not correspond. I properly earned the money through business activities and taxed it, and I also sold an apartment in Prague during this period. I can prove my income without a problem,” she said.
