Slovak PM gets increased personal protection after apparent threat

Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová is being transported in a so-called security limousine, the daily Nový Čas wrote on October 6. It reported that Milan Marko, the head of the Office for Protection of Public Officials, confirmed that the premier has been given use of the armoured car – and that the situation is sufficiently serious to require such a measure.

It reported that Milan Marko, the head of the Office for Protection of Public Officials, confirmed that the premier has been given use of the armoured car – and that the situation is sufficiently serious to require such a measure.

Radičová received an envelope at her home in Nová Dedinka, outside Bratislava, containing a cartridge case. This followed her statement that she wants to change the laws on gambling and casinos, and will stop all “tunnelling” – i.e. embezzlement – of public money. Since then, she has lived under a so-called special regime, meaning an increased level of protection. She is driven in an armoured Audi A8 vehicle, the driver of which has been specially trained. She also no longer receives mail at her home, and her daughter Eva has been assigned bodyguards.
