RFE/RL to give police kidnap transcript

The radio service RFE/RL plans to give police investigators a transcript of an interview with an eyewitness to the kidnapping of President Michal Kováč's son, Sme reported on August 6. RFE/RL Director of Broadcasting Robert Gillette told Sme that the station will provide it "as a gesture of goodwill towards Slovak authorities and in the hope that the investigation will be fully and justly resolved." Police investigator Jozef Čiž asked RFE/RL for a copy in late July, after a prosecutor rejected his adjournment of the investigation for lack of evidence. The interview was broadcast by RFE/RL one week after the incident in late August 1995.
