Alojz Lorenc, the last chief of the ŠtB secret service in communist Czechoslovakia, was yesterday sentenced by a Bratislava military court to a 15-month suspended prison sentence for crimes committed while in office. The lenient Slovak sentence comes nine years after a Czech court sentenced him to four years in prison. Lorenc, who refused to be extradited from Slovakia, never served the former sentence.
