A German court sent drugs in an official packet delivered to a Slovak family, the private TV channel TV Joj reported in its evening news on Tuesday, October 12. The parcel contained "solely drugs" according to the addressee, identified as Alžbeta, a resident of Bidovce (Košice Region), and was delivered by messenger.

The Korzár daily quoted Alžbeta as saying that the German court had sent "white powder" and the personal belongings of her brother, who is serving a sentence in a German prison. The drugs are believed to be part of the evidence in the prosecution case.

"There was a wallet, a mobile phone, everything sealed with the seals of the German police," Alžbeta told TV Joj. The package also included an inventory. "So far, the Slovak police have not asked for an official translation of the document added to the parcel, or for an analysis of the substance in the parcel," Košice Police spokesperson Jana Demjanovičová told TV Joj, but added that they would ask the German authorities for an explanation. The TV channel claimed the parcel contained five doses of Pervitin, also known as methamphetamine.
