The lawyer for fugitive ex-secret service head Ivan Lexa says his client wants to come back to Slovakia. Ivan Trokan made the claim in an interview with the daily Sme October 15.
"He certainly wants to return to the country," said Trokan.
Lexa, who fled the country last year, is wanted by police in connection with the 1995 kidnapping of the then president's son, Michal Kováč Jr. Lexa was head of the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) at the time and is believed to have been behind the kidnapping.
