NEWS BRIEFS

Court frees Belgian border violator

A DISTRICT court in Skalica has released Belgian citizen Luc Debuyser, who last week illegally stormed through border crossings on his way in and out of Slovakia, the TASR news wire reported.

The Belgian "road warrior", accused by Slovak authorities of illegally crossing the state border, will be investigated at large.

Driving a BMW, Debuyser, 43, ran amok through Slovakia on February 16, first smashing through a customs checkpoint at the Czech border and then doing the same around 12 hours later at the Hungarian border.

He was not detained until he arrived in Budapest on February 18. He was arrested there, but deported to Slovakia on February 20, since he had committed only a minor offence in Hungary.

Czech authorities are charging Debuyser with the armed attack of a public official.
