Illegally rich are ahead of the law

GENERAL Prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka told the SME daily that the new law on documenting the origin of assets will not catch those who gained their riches from illegal activities. ”We won't live long enough to see the outcome of court cases", he said.

The law comes into effect in September; however, Trnka said that those who should be prosecuted have already found ways of circumventing the law.

The seminar at which the General Prosecutor made his comments was organized by opposition party Smer.

Robert Fico, chairman of Smer, admitted that those who have become rich through illegal means are five years ahead of the legislation and "who was clever enough, cleared up [his/her] assets".
