Majský caught on Horizont tape

Police have confirmed that a voice in a taped conversation discussing the intimate details of the sale of the failed non-bank investment firm Horizont belongs to Slovak financier Jozef Majský. The tape appears to confirm that Majský played a major role in the fraudulent sale and later crash of Horizont, which cost hundreds of thousands of Slovaks billions in savings.
