The EU/UK trade deal and Czech PM slams EU auditors as ‘mafia’

This week on EURACTIV’s Yellow Room, we are talking about the ratification of the EU’s post-Brexit trade agreement with the UK. At last, we may be seeing the turning of the page on economic and diplomatic relations between the two parties. To break down the components of the deal, we spoke with EURACTIV’s Benjamin Fox.

We are also off to the Czech Republic, where a storm was sparked by Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, who referred to the European Commission’s auditors as “mafia.” His comment came after a report linked him with one of the largest agricultural companies in the country and the distribution of EU funds.

To break down the story behind these allegations, I spoke with Aneta Zachova, editor-in-chief of EURACTIV Czech Republic.
