The prosecutor's office has asked parliament to revoke the parliamentary immunity of Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) member Viliam Soboňa, who has been under investigation for 28 months for business malpractice as head of the Sliač thermal spa.
Soboňa said: "The investigator has had 28 months to complete the investigation. So it's a difficult case if they want to put the blame on me".
This is the first request to strip immunity since the parliamentary elections last September.
