No parking for mafia

SLOVAK Police Vice-President Jaroslav Spišiak has ordered a crackdown on the mafia, even for minor offences.

People should no longer witness an ordinary motorist being stopped while an expensive car occupied by two "gentlemen" with shaven heads illegally park in a pedestrian zone just a few metres away, reports the daily SME.

"It is important to ensure control of the movement of these people. The whole police force should be part of it," said Spišiak.
