Lexa answers police summons

FORMER SECRET service boss Ivan Lexa on October 15 gave evidence to police in two cases where he faces abuse of power charges from his 1995-1998 tenure. The questioning continued the next day.

Lexa was extradited in July from South Africa, where he had fled to avoid an international arrest warrant. However, the Slovak Supreme Court later freed him from pre-trial custody in a deeply controversial decision.

Lexa faces 12 charges including sabotage and kidnapping.
