Kašiský plays down allegations of weapons stash

According to the SITA newswire, Defence Minister František Kašický has denied allegations that a warehouse crammed with shell casings was part of a stash of secret weapons and might have been connected to a huge explosion that rocked the building on March 2 taking eight lives.

The materials were uncovered at the Vojenský Opravárenský Podnik (VOP) military maintenance company in Nováky on June 29. The allegation that the 1.3 million cartridge casings might have been connected to illegal business dealings appeared orginally in the Nový ?as daily on Monday.

However, Minister Kašický emphasized that the 1.3 million projectiles contained only non-explosive parts of disassembled ammunition and represented no danger. He added, however, that experts would investigate why the cartridges had not been liquidated.
