SMER candidate for the upcoming elections Martin Glváč rejected allegations made recently by Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) deputy chairman and former justice minister Daniel Lipšic, who accused Glváč of having contacts with the underworld.
"Smer calls on Lipšic to provide evidence about the co-operation of any politicians with members of the underworld to the law enforcement officials. Otherwise, this is obviously a defamation," Smer spokesperson Silvia Glendová said to TASR.
Lipšic made the respective suggestions in a recent political talk show in Joj TV, saying that Glváč had contacts with the former underworld figure Jozef Svoboda, who was murdered in 2004.
