Another Lexa case snuffed

Over 16 months after first receiving the case, a Bratislava region court judge has returned charges of alleged asset stripping at the SIS secret service under the 1995-1998 tenure of Ivan Lexa to a state prosecutor for further investigation.

The case involves the alleged setting-up of companies through which the SIS leadership channeled millions of crowns in state funds.

State prosecutor Michal Serbin has appealed the ruling by the judge, Margita Horná.

Of the 10 charges Lexa faces from his time at the SIS, including kidnapping, sabotage and armed robbery, almost all cases have been returned to prosecutors for further investigation, through what Serbin says is both fear and corruption among judges ruling on cases involving the well-connected Lexa.
