Municipality ordered a specific car with a questionable procurement
The Anti-Corruption Fund (ACF) alerted the Agency for State Financial Inspection (PFIA) for a dubious public procurement of Hadjidimovo Municipality for the supply of a luxury car. It was announced on December 14 last year, and the specifications are so specific that only one car meets them. It is about “Mercedes-Benz S350d L 4M AMG line facelift”, offered by “Hermes Auto Group” EOOD on its website. The company is the only one to submit an offer. Despite the media interest in the case, there is no reaction from state institutions, according to the ACF. They add that the order for such a luxury car does not correspond to the needs of Hadjidimovo Municipality, which is financially over-indebted.
