The Slovak National Party’s (SNS) chairman, Ján Slota, summoned a press conference on April 7 to inform media that in 1991 the current Police President, Jaroslav Spišiak, was prosecuted for stealing petrol from his police car, with Slota alleging that Spišiak was even punished for doing so, the Sme.sk website reported.
Slota also alleged that in 2000 and 2004 Spišiak caused several car accidents while drunk-driving and damaged several police cars. Slota added that police inspectors investigating these cases smoothed away the crimes and currently serve in top police positions – naming Ján Nociar and Robert Zaplatílek, as reported by Sme.sk.
Slota called on Spišiak to explain his past and labelled him as someone who was promoted only thanks to friendship with influential persons and as a dilettante who is ruining the police corps, Sme.sk wrote.
