Police cannot stop Majský from running away

FORMER tycoon Jozef Majský, who was released from custody two days ago, and who is awaiting a court case in relation to his involvement in the collapse of the unlicensed savings companies BMG Invest and Horizont Slovakia, is free to leave Slovakia and the police cannot stop him, wrote the Pravda daily.

Being an EU citizen, Majský is allowed to leave Slovakia to move freely within the EU states even without a passport, which the police took away from him, as only any regular piece of ID is required.

"Police currently have no legal means to stop him at the [Slovak] borders," said Interior Ministry's spokeswoman Monika Kuhajdová.

Majský's lawyer Peter Filip said, however, that his client had no intention of running away. Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic noted, however, that Majský was arrested at the Slovak-Austrian border nearly two years ago.
