Remiaš killing commemorated

ABOUT FORTY people gathered at the sixth annual commemoration of the death of Ivan Remiaš, a former policeman who was killed by a car bomb on April 29, 1996.

The killing is believed to have been the first political murder since the creation of the independent Slovak Republic in 1993. Remiaš at the time was acting as a go-between for Oskar Fegyveres, a member of the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS), who was in hiding but claimed to have information of the SIS's involvement in the 1995 kidnapping of Michal Kováč Jr, son of the then-President.

The two suspects in the Remiaš killing, former SIS members Jozef Roháč and Imrich Oláh, are sought by Interpol. Former SIS director Ivan Lexa, a member of the opposition HZDS party, is also in hiding to evade an arrest warrant.
