Kaliňák: Three new investigations launched in the Gorilla Case
4 Dec 2013 Flash News
The police team probing the Gorilla Case have launched three new criminal investigations, while also asking for legal help from Cyprus, the UK and Austria, and plans to apply for co-operation to the United States and the Czech Republic and question dozens of new witnesses.
This stems from the updated July report on the Gorilla Case presented in parliament by Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák on December 3.
“In the meantime, three criminal investigations have been halted, with other ones still pending,” he said. “The investigations are extremely complex, our task is to let the investigating team operate without any intervention from our side, so that the investigation process proceeds in an independent manner.”
The Gorilla file is a lengthy document that purports to describe an operation conducted by the Slovak Information Service (SIS), the country’s main intelligence agency, in which it collected information about the influence of the Penta financial group on senior Slovak politicians between 2005 and 2006. The wiretapping took place between November 2010 and January 2011.
