Police charge five Nováky employees for blast

Police have charged five employees of the military maintenance company
Vojenský Opravárenský Podnik (VOP) Novaky in relation to an explosion
in March that killed eight people.

Police charged the five employees - four top managers and a security
technician - on July 7.

In early March, the company's ammunition warehouse was destroyed by a
large explosion in the building where employees were dismantling
ammunition.

Five men (aged 31, 43, 49, 51 and 65) from the Prievidza District are
accused of the offence of general threat, for which they could be
sentenced to four to 10 years in prison.
