Lexa wants to return to Slovakia

The daily paper Národná Obroda reports that Ivan Lexa, former director of the SIS secret service, has recently considered returning to Slovakia and running again as a member of parliament for the opposition HZDS party. The paper, citing Lexa lawyer Juraj Trokan for the information, says Lexa’s decision will depend on the outcome of four criminal cases in which he features as the defendant, and which involve fraud and sabotage.
