Sendrei investigation finished

AN INVESTIGATION into the beating death of Roma Karol Sendrei last year at a Slovak police station has finished, and a district prosecutor is studying the file before deciding on laying charges.

Sendrei, from the eastern Slovak town of Magnetizovce, was pronounced dead after spending a night in a police station with his two sons, chained to an iron bar. Seven police officers were later charged with torture and inhuman and cruel conduct. Four remain in pre-trial custody.
