Mystery caller identified

A MYSTERY over a call claiming the Prime Minister's life was in danger has been solved by police after they discovered an 88-year-old suffering from dementia had started the panic.

Last Friday police took an anonymous call claiming that there would be an assassination attempt on PM Mikuláš Dzurinda, and alerted the PM's office.

Officers traced the call to the house of an elderly man in Košice, but when questioned the man said he had made no such call and that he had no knowledge of any attempt on the PM's life.

Puzzled police later got hold of the man's medical records, which showed he had been suffering from dementia for years.
