The state attorney on Monday halted the investigation into EU subsidy fraud by Andrej Babis, according to Denik N.

The prosecutors office said its opinion of the case has “changed” but declined to provide further details.

While authorities said they won’t comment further until the review is over, Prague prosecutor’s spokesman, Ales Cimbala, told public television that a formal decision hasn’t been issued and the case hasn’t been officially shelved “at this point.” He didn’t answer phone calls seeking comment.

Babis also faces European Commission scrutiny over a potential conflict of interest.
