Hudek put on VÚB's Board

Ľudovít Hudek the former Minister of the Interior who resigned from his post on August 27, was elected VÚB vice-president and ushered on to the bank's Board of Directors. Hudek, who was hired to be the head of VÚB's security and protection of property department, is perhaps best known for the alleged May recording of a phone call between him and Slovak Intelligence Chief Ivan Lexa, that if proven to be authentic, could implicate both men in covering up the kidnapping of the Slovak President's son, Michal Kováč, Jr. Hudek has maintained that the tape is a fake and that the conversation never took place.
