Special team to investigate criminal group allegations

A special team has been assembled to investigate the group that, according to Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, has been intentionally destabilising the state and his party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ).

The prime minister refused to comment on statements made by opposition Smer's Robert Kaliňák, who had disseminated names in association with the group, claiming that Dzurinda had labelled these people as enemies of the state.

According to private TV Markíza, in his testimony to the prosecution on Monday, Dzurinda had only named Jan Mojžiš, the head of the National Security Office, and businessman Miloš Žiak as members of the group. Mojžiš and Žiak had allegedly been involved in corruption during tenders for a Defense Ministry IT system.
