Černák skips country

Police are searching for the suspected boss of the Banska Bystrica mafia, Mikuláš Černák, after reports that he fled the country illegally. Last week a court ordered him to be returned to prison to complete a sentence he was released from too early.

Police vice president Jaroslav Spišiak said: "We have not registered any official border crossing but we know that [Černák] is outside Slovakia."

The Supreme Court ordered him to be returned to prison because he had not served the required two-thirds of his original sentence when a lower court released him. Theoretically, Černák may not be aware of the court order against him, officials said.
