Babiš planning to file complaint over Czech TV “bias”

The Czech minister of finance, Andrej Babiš, plans to file a complaint against Czech Television over reports on two of its news programmes, the news website iHned.cz reported on Tuesday. Mr. Babiš says the investigative show Reportéři ČT recently celebrated its 20th “manipulated report” about his business ties. The billionaire businessman and ANO leader recently accused journalists from Reportéři ČT of being corrupt. Mr. Babiš said it and the show 168 hodin were not balanced and that Czech TV should not take part in political battles. The two programmes have raised questions about some financial operations involving the minister’s company Agrofert.
