POLICE raided the offices of Supreme Court judge Milan Lipovský, according to the Národná Obroda daily.
Ladislav Ríz, 38, accused the judge of accepting a Sk2 million (€51,000) crown bribe. The police raid was a search for evidence relating to the alleged bribe.
The money, allegedly handed over in May 2003, is supposed to have been in return for letting Miloš Kaštan out of prison.
Kaštan was previously the right-hand man of the alleged boss of the Slovak underworld, Mikuláš Černák, who is currently in prison.
