Prosecutor-General Dobroslav Trnka said on February 3 that his office will reveal details concerning its decision to halt criminal proceedings in the case of alleged fictitious donors to the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party in 2006, the TASR newswire wrote.

According to a recent ruling by Slovakia’s Supreme Court, this information should have only been revealed to the Fair-Play Alliance when it requested it.

“I'll disclose it not only to the Fair-Play Alliance, but to all Slovaks,” said Trnka to TASR. “I'll publish it in the full wording of all writs, rulings and verdicts of all courts, and let the public make up their own mind about what the ruling is like,” he said, adding that he views the Supreme Court’s decision as misleading and is worried that it will open Pandora’s Box.

The Fair-Play Alliance won a case against the Prosecutor-General’s Office before the Supreme Court requiring the office to disclose the reasons behind its decision to halt proceedings in the case of allegedly fictitious donors to SDKÚ, the director of the Fair-Play Alliance, Zuzana Wienk, told TASR at the beginning of January.

She said that the Prosecutor-General’s Office had refused to provide the documents, claiming that the law doesn't allow this and that people should be satisfied simply with the ruling itself. The case of fictitious donors concerned alleged financial donations to SDKÚ from private entities who later denied that any such donations had been provided to the party. TASR
