Trnka: Harabin-Sadiki transcript part of court file

The transcript of an apparently friendly telephone call between current Justice Minister Štefan Harabin (HZDS nominee) and alleged Albanian drug Mafia boss Baki Sadiki in the 1990s is on file, Prosecutor General Dobroslav Trnka said at a press conference in Bratislava on September 9. But Trnka said that he didn't know how KDH MP Daniel Lipšic was able to get hold of a copy of the transcript, which Lipšic used as evidence during last week’s debate on a no-confidence motion in Harabin.

Once the motion failed, Harabin made allegedly anti-Semitic remarks toward Lipšic that Trnka has called “a personal offense.” TASR
