Horizont bosses to stay behind bars

The Košice district court has extended the pre-trial custody of Vladimír Fruni and Marián Šebeščák, former owners of failed investment firms Horizont Slovakia and BMG Invest, until September 29. Last week, two other suspects in the case were freed from pre-trial custody.

Fruni and Šebeščák were arrested in March 2002 by Croatian police close to Makarska, where Fruni owns a villa. The men had gone there when the two investment companies closed down.

They were held in prison in Croatia for several months before being returned to Slovakia in June.
