Matovič passes lie detector test

LEADER of the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) Igor Matovič underwent testing on the lie detector and passed. The testing took place following a press conference on June 2 where Matovič claimed that chairman of the new party Sieť (Network) and unsuccessful presidential candidate Radoslav Procházka attempted to purchase campaign ads under the counter in an advertisement newspaper published by Matovič’s family.

LEADER of the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) Igor Matovič underwent testing on the lie detector and passed. The testing took place following a press conference on June 2 where Matovič claimed that chairman of the new party Sieť (Network) and unsuccessful presidential candidate Radoslav Procházka attempted to purchase campaign ads under the counter in an advertisement newspaper published by Matovič’s family.

Matovič called on Procházka to undergo testing as well, saying that if Procházka passed, he would leave politics, the TASR newswire reported on June 6.

The OĽaNO leader said the test was administered by an independent company selected by the Nový Čas daily, which also prepared the questions. Matovič knew the questions in advance, TASR wrote.

The first question was whether Procházka asked him if he could pay 50-90 percent of the costs of an ad in a newspaper owned and distributed by Matovič’s family in cash and without an invoice. Matovič answered “yes” and passed.

The second question was whether Procházka tried to persuade Matovič that nobody would check if such a transaction were to occur. Matovič answered “yes” and passed.

The last question was whether he tried to blackmail Procházka by saying he would summon a press conference and discuss this case since Procházka was late in paying the invoice. Matovič said “no” and passed.

“I proved what I was saying,” Matovič said, as quoted by TASR. He added that he would like all politicians to take polygraph tests. Procházka, according to him, would not pass.
