Ministry to apologise to MEP robbed on visit

ON BEHALF of the Slovak police force, the Interior Ministry will officially apologise to MEP Hans Peter Martin, who was robbed during a recent visit to Slovakia.

According to reports, Martin wrote to President Rudolf Schuster complaining that the police did not carry out their duties as expected.

"It seems that a tough and uncompromising approach to those police officers who could not behave, or are involved in criminal activities, is in place," Interior Ministry spokesman Boris Azaltovič told the TASR newswire.

" The 'nice to citizens - tough on crime' principle will be enforced without compromise," Azaltovič stressed, adding that the ministry will continue its efforts to clear police ranks of those who have no business being there.
