Kukan says son was abducted before election

FOREIGN Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan has announced that the small group Prime Minister Mikulás Dzurinda believes is working against Slovakia's interest does exist.

Though prosecution bodies have said that there is no organised group, Kukan told the Národna obroda daily that the group was active and preparing a new campaign to discredit him.

"They are working on new discrediting campaigns. They plan to go against me and my family," said Kukan.

Kukan added that, shortly after he announced his presidential candidacy, his son was abducted in Prague.

MP Ivan Šimko, who was sacked after he refused to vote for the recall of the former head of the National Security Office, Ján Mojžiš, said he knew nothing about the group. PM Dzurinda has claimed that Mojžiš is a member of the group.
