Michal Kováč Jr., in a program broadcast by Slovak Television on November 25, rejected accusation of his involvement in fraudulent business transactions, Slovak and international media reported, Kováč Jr., who was abducted to Austria on August 31 and detained there, called the charged "complete lies." The accusations were made a week earlier on STV by Peter Krylov, who was convicted in Germany of fraud and implicated the son the Slovak president. Kováč Jr. said he had never had any business connections with Krylov and accused state-run STV of not bothering to seek proof of Krylov's charges, which discredited both him and "above all, my father."
