Lexa back by Thursday

Former secret service boss and MP Ivan Lexa, arrested on July 14 in South Africa as an illegal immigrant, could be returned to Slovakia tomorrow on regular commercial flights with a police escort.

Once Lexa is in Slovakia, a court will have 48 hours to decide whether to keep him in jail. Lexa still faces eight charges from his time at the head of the SIS secret service, including sabotage and abuse of power.
