BRATISLAVA: Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico said Monday he was looking for the owner of a wallet crammed with cash and credit cards he found during his morning jog in the capital Bratislava. “I found a wallet full of money and credit cards when I was jogging this morning by the Danube river,” he told journalists at a press conference.
“The owner can pick up his wallet at the government office,” he added. No sooner did he announce his find than it began generating jokes on social networking sites, with commentators saying a full wallet was a rare find in Slovakia, the eurozone’s second-poorest country.
