“In last three weeks, we have detained three foreigners from Nigeria at the M.R. Štefánik Airport in Bratislava, the last one on Saturday, June 27. On June 26, the District Court Bratislava II detained M.K.A., suspected of the grave crime of illegal production of psychotropic matter, its possession and trafficking. The reason for detention is the so-called escape and preventive custody,” the spokesman for the Regional Court in Bratislava, Pavol Adamčiak, told TASR.
