Opposition KDH MP Daniel Lipšic said on June 18 that he would take Justice Minister Štefan Harabin (HZDS) to court for suggesting that Lipšic has contacts with the Kosovar-Albanian mafia, the TASR newswire wrote.

In a statement released to the TASR newswire that day, Lipšic said he assumes Harabin made the comment because he is nervous and has real and justified fears about his own contacts with Bakim Sadiki, an alleged mobster from Albania.

"As for me, I'll be patient and I will continue to demand answers to specific questions,” Lipšic said. “I believe that both journalists and the public will hear answers that will clarify the suspicious contacts the Justice Minister has with organised crime."

Lipšic also said he can prove his statements. TASR
