More Lexa cases abandoned

The Bratislava III district court has halted prosecution in another case against former secret service boss Ivan Lexa, this time in the theft of a Mercedes car allegedly used to kidnap the former president’s son in 1995. The court ruled that an amnesty issued in the case by former acting president Vladimír Mečiar made it impossible to proceed.

The court also returned two further Lexa cases for further investigation: The placing of an explosive in 1998 at an election rally of the Christian Democrats, then in opposition, and the theft of equipment used for bugging mobile telephones.

The prosecutor on the cases has appealed the court decision to Bratislava regional court.
