Oskar F. to get asylum in unnamed country

A former Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) agent who said he participated in the abduction of Slovak President Michal Kováč's son told the RFE/RL Slovak Service on July 31 that he will soon gain asylum in an unnamed foreign country. Oskar Fegyveres, who for months has been in hiding, said "in a few days, I will be safe." He noted that he is willing to be questioned further but only after "democracy wins in Slovakia and people like [Prime Minister] Vladimír Mečiar and [SIS] chief Ivan Lexa are toppled and punished for their actions." Fegyveres also blamed the SIS for the death in a car explosion of his friend Róbert Remiáš. Two people who have taken over Remiáš's role as Fegyveres's link with Slovakia are being followed by the same SIS agents who shadowed Remiáš, Fegyveres claimed.
