Electrician Štefan Gonda, who was had an explosive planted onto his luggage by a Slovak police officer at the Poprd-Tatry airport on January 2 before his flight to Dublin, has reportedly not been annoyed by the incident and does not plan to sue Slovak police for having been detained by Irish police in Dublin, the web portal topky.sk wrote.

Gonda has been working in Ireland for four years and has returned to Slovakia only for summer and Christmas holidays. He refused to communicate with media.

“I know what he has been through,” his wife, Monika Gondová, told journalists. “He tries to escape these feelings, but he does have a trauma,” she added. According to the Nový čas daily, Gonda could sue Slovak police and ask for non-material damage, but he is not gong to do that, according to his wife.

“We feel sorry for the police dog-handler who made the mistake and we do not want him to suffer unnecessarily,” she explained. “Besides, the police have apologised for the unfortunate incident.” www.topky.sk
