The situation in both the police and the Prosecutor General’s Office is becoming entangled. The reason is the penitents and especially the question of whether and how someone influenced the testimony of witnesses in the most toxic cases.
The investigation of investigators who deal with cases of corruption in the highest positions in the police, the Slovak Information Service or politics is gaining momentum. Csaba Dömötör is in custody to testify to bribes. They are looking for his other two companions, Petr Petrov and Matej Zeman.
Zeman testified against former special prosecutor Dušan Kováčik at the Specialized Criminal Court. All three claim to have witnessed high potentates taking bribes or negotiating to buy justice.
However, when the court also sent the former head of the SIS, Vladimír Pčolinský, into custody, the current political leaders also began to become entangled in the investigation. The result was a secret meeting, an extraordinary parliamentary session and a leaked SIS report that the witnesses’ testimonies were “fine-tuned” and “adjusted” so that justice would not be brought to justice.
This was followed by the establishment of a special team at the Office of the Inspection Service of the Ministry of the Interior. And then an action in which Zeman and Petrov were not detained because it was interrupted for a time by Police President Peter Kovařík. And in this case, the prosecutor’s prosecutor from the Bratislava Regional Prosecutor’s Office, Rastislav Remeta, began to prosecute.Read more Open war: The police president was to thwart the detention of two accused
Who and what stopped
Kovařík admitted to interrupting the inspection action. “The prosecutor of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Bratislava launched a criminal prosecution on July 28 for the crime of abuse of power by a public official and the crime of obstruction of justice in connection with the suspension of police intervention. search, “said Remet’s statement by the spokesperson of the Prosecutor General’s Office Jana Tökölyová.
Remeta also stated for Pravda that the documents show that the action was interrupted directly by the police president. He, in turn, resisted that the head of the special investigation team, Diana Santusová, did not proceed in the event as she should have.
“It is absolutely inadmissible for the deployment of such an intervention unit to be approved by an official at the lowest level of management who is not authorized to do so, and the head of a specialized team knew about this fact,” Kovařík responded to Remet’s words. “The movement of the armed unit in the field therefore had to be checked immediately, it is not permissible for the investigators’ arbitrariness to prevail in such a serious matter,” he explained.
According to him, Santus recalled the intervention unit herself because she did not know where the wanted persons were at that moment. “The intervention was interrupted by my decision after consulting with the temporarily appointed director of the ÚIS until all the circumstances of the request and deployment of the intervention unit of the Sobrance Border and Alien Police Office were found out,” the police president added.
According to him, the intervention unit guarded the detainee at that time and remained in front of the objects until the decision on the legality of the intervention. “The whole procedure was checked operatively, within forty minutes. In addition, the interruption of the intervention only concerned the activities of the intervention unit, not the activities of the team, the inspection and other support units, “Kovařík emphasized.
Santus has been suspended from the leadership of a specialized team that is investigating allegations of abuse of power by NAKA members.Read more The head of the inspection suspended the activities of the head of the office team, which is investigating NAKA
Was it Mikulec?
Did Kovařík stop the event directly at the direction of Interior Minister Mikulec? “The Minister of the Interior did not give any instructions to the President of the Police Force of the Slovak Republic. Due to the fact that several journalists turned directly to the Minister of the Interior, and investigators, etc.), the Minister of the Interior asked the temporarily appointed director of the Office of the Inspection Service to check the situation in front of the inspection building, “Minister’s spokeswoman Barbora Túrosová responded to the Truth’s questions.
When it became clear that the inspection was carried out by a unit of the Border and Alien Police Office Sobrance, which falls under the Presidium of the Police Force, Mikulec turned to Police President Kovařík to “check the circumstances of their deployment.” he had no knowledge, “adds Túrosová.
In this, the statement of the ministry coincides with the words of the police president: Santus’s superiors did not know about the deployment of members of the Sobranice unit. “The President of the Police Force of the Slovak Republic did not stop the activities of the investigator’s team, but only the activities of the intervention unit as one of the parts of the team. .
Žilinka and Lipšic
NAKA investigators, who are suspected of manipulating and modifying the testimony of some witnesses to convict virtually anyone, but also of supervisory prosecutors who are following the investigation, have been publicly supported by Special Prosecutor Daniel Lipšic.
He pointed out that the investigation of investigators and thus indirectly of his subordinate prosecutors is not entirely clean.
Prosecutor Maroš Žilinka warned the special prosecutor that he was no longer a lawyer and should be tamed in his statements. as a special prosecutor.Read more Žilinka sfúkol Lipšica. The reason is the police war
