The visualisation focuses on how civil servants are called to account for wasting the public money found by the Slovak Supreme Audit Office. After reading more than 47 control reports and sending dozens of freedom of information requests we found out that the Slovak Supreme Audit Office detected wasting public money in the amount of more than 28 million Euro in 5 ministries in 2009 – 2011 – and nobody was sanctioned for that. The visualisation illustrates the amounts of money wasted in each ministry representing real amounts comparatively on a smaller scale. It also points out the most absurd cases of money wasting and summarizes statements of responsible ministries.
