Černák to go back to prison

The Supreme Court ruled that alleged Banská Bystrica mafia boss Mikuláš Černák must be immediately returned to prison, after being released by a Trenčín court after less than five years of an eight-and-a-half-year prison sentence.

The court made the ruling on the basis of a complaint by Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic, who said that according to new laws Černák could only be released after serving a minimum of two-thirds of his sentence, and not after half the time, as stated in previous laws.

Černák will have to serve a minimum of eight more months of his sentence. His lawyer expressed shock at the decision.
