Majský apprehended

BUSINESS tycoon Jozej Majský, who is suspected of stripping assets from the bankrupt pyramid schemes Horizont and BMG Invest, was apprehended yesterday and taken into custody on the basis of a warrant issued by the Special Court for organized crime cases.

Police said the reason a warrant was issued for Majský was that he was not staying at the address he provided to the court, nor was receiving the mail sent to him by the Special Court.

Majský is being tried on the charges while at liberty, even though his alleged accomplices, Dávid Brtva and Patrik Pachiner, are being held in pre-trial custody. Despite being released from custody himself in a controversial decision by Attorney General Dobroslav Trnka, Majský has so far failed to show up for his court hearings, excusing himself with claimed heart problems. When he again recently failed to show up in court, a tabloid daily spotted him smoking a cigarette and walking around Bratislava. He was later fined Sk50,000 for his absence.

A Special Court judge is to decide today whether to take Majský back into custody.
