Police arrested for border corruption

A total of 16 current and former police officers have been arrested on corruption charges following an operation based on the Slovak-Hungarian border.

"They took bribes from Romanian citizens who wanted their passports stamped as having entered Slovakia. [The Romanians] needed to prove that they had left Hungary so that they could stay there for a further 30 days," explained Interior Minister Vladimír Palko.

The minister said that the Romanians had paid between 500 and 1,000 Hungarian forints per person for the 'service' (€1.90 to €3.80).
