Prosecution in Govnet case renewed

The special prosecutor's office will renew criminal prosecution in the case of suspected power abuse in connection with a tender for the governmental IT system known as Govnet, news wire SITA reported.

The prosecution was suspended in April 2003. The prosecutor will demand testimony from former director of the National Security Office (NBÚ) Ján Mojžiš, who claims that he was offered a bribe of Sk150 million (€3.64 million).

After his dismissal, Mojzis told daily SME that in 2002 Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda requested him to change the NBÚ decision to deny a security clearance to the private company KISS, which was involved in the Govnet project.
