Grenade hits crime boss house

A grenade exploded in front of the house of an accomplice of crime boss Mikuláš Černák, in what police called a warning to Černák not to testify against former secret service chief Ivan Lexa in a 1996 murder case.

Miloš Kaštan, whose house was affected, is serving a seven-year sentence for extortion.

Lexa was taken into pre-trial custody last week on charges of ordering the murder of former policeman Robert Remiaš, shortly after Černák was released early from an 8.5-year extortion term for good behaviour.

Černák has denied he provided evidence against Lexa in exchange for his release.
