Published information from a police investigation and the testimony of cooperating defendants shows that the top officials and allies of Smer and Hlas were to abuse the police to discredit and prosecute political opponents.

They were also to be misused to cover up and not investigate their people. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Investment and Informatization Veronika Remišová (For People) during Tuesday’s press conference, saying that the findings are extremely serious.
“It is unacceptable for Robert Fico (Smer) to meet with the highest representatives of law enforcement agencies at the Office of the Government and to argue for discrediting, prosecuting, investigating political opponents,” Remišová said. She noted that this was the case with Andrej Kisk and Igor Matovič (OĽaNO).

She said that as an opposition, they claimed that state forces should be misused to investigate or not investigate politically sensitive cases and to discredit uncomfortable people.
“The suspicions that are currently emerging are already a criminal matter and require the full attention of the police and the prosecutor’s office,” she said. According to Remišová, Fico has something to explain to citizens and law enforcement agencies. He will not file a criminal complaint in this regard.
In recent days, the news portal Aktuality.sk has been informing about secret meetings during the era of Prime Minister Robert Fico. He refers to the testimony of the former head of the financial administration, František Imrecze and other cooperating accused, who was being prosecuted.
The meetings were to be attended by top representatives of the state, the police and the financial administration. They were to coordinate the investigation and discredit of former President Andrej Kisk or Igor Matovič, who is currently the Minister of Finance. Fico repeatedly calls the statements of the cooperating accused, the so-called penitents, to be manipulated.
