Černák returned to prison in Slovakia

The Slovak police received custody of the suspected boss of the Banská Bystrica underworld, Mikuláš Černák, after he was extradited from the Czech Republic where he had planned to apply for asylum.

Černák was released from prison in Slovakia in November last year after serving only half of an eight-and-a-half year sentence for extortion. In March 2003 the Supreme Court ordered his return to jail on the grounds that prisoners were required to serve a minimum two-thirds of their sentences under current legislation.
