Police launch prosecution in Gorilla-related case, but name no suspects
6 Mar 2013 Flash News
The police team investigating the so-called Gorilla file has initiated a prosecution over the privatisation of Slovenské Elektrárne (SE), Slovakia’s main electricity-generating utility. A majority stake in the firm was sold to the Italian company Enel during the second government of Mikuláš Dzurinda (2002-2006), the TASR newswire reported on March 5.
“The charges have been laid concerning a violation of duties related to administration of the property of others,” said Police Corps Presidium spokesperson Michal Slivka, as quoted by TASR. The police have not named any suspects in the case.
The Gorilla file, a document allegedly containing transcripts made by the Slovak Information Service (SIS) intelligence agency suggesting high-level political corruption during the second Dzurinda government, does not directly mention the SE privatisation. Investigators have reportedly gathered information on the case from witnesses and from studying various documents obtained during the Gorilla investigation, TASR wrote.
