Prague - Vera Jourova (ANO), 49, candidate for the Czech European commissioner, besides being proficient in English and Russian, also has a passive Romanian skill, but she would not like being tested on the language, she said smiling in an interview with CTK today.
Ministryně pro místní rozvoj Věra Jourová okomentovala 10. dubna na tiskové konferenci v Praze dnešní verdikt Obvodního soudu pro Prahu 2, který jí přiznal 2,7 milionu korun za ušlý zisk kvůli její někdejší nezákonné vazbě v souvislosti s kauzou Budišov. Ministryně to požadovala v žalobě, kterou podala na ministerstvo spravedlnosti. Rozsudek není pravomocný. ČTK Kamaryt Michal
Jourova said she gained a passive knowledge of Romanian specialist jargon when she was going to Romania over a period of five years to give lectures and work there in her capacity as adviser to various ministries on European funds.
Jourova said, however, she dares to say only a few phrases and fundamental conversational sentences.
She said she likes Romania and its inhabitants. "I like Romanians. I know they tried a lot, but sincerely, they are not good at the funds," she said.
Jourova, local development minister and ANO first deputy chairwoman, provided consultancy on European funds before she entered the government and Chamber of Deputies last year.
