Pittner protests having to appear before Parliament committee

Ladislav Pittner, a former interior minister currently serving as a deputy of the opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), told Radio Twist on August 27 that a summons for him to appear before the parliamentary Mandate and Immunity Committee in September is a "threat to democracy." At the request of a Bratislava investigator, the committee is considering removing Pittner's parliamentary immunity. Pittner said no reasons were given for the move but added that it is connected with his activities as chairman of an independent civic commission established to investigate the Kovac Jr. kidnapping case.
