Police drop Hudek, Lexa case

Police dropped the case against Interior Minister Ľudovít Hudek and Slovak Intelligence Service chief Ivan Lexa, saying there was "no suspicion of criminal activity," Slovak media reported on July 22-23. Charges were filed against them in May by Ivan Ďuris, chairman of the extraparliamentary Republican Party, after a conversation was allegedly taped between them pointing to their interference in the police investigation into last August's kidnapping of Michal Kováč Jr.
