Slovak police detain head of the Slovak Deaflympics Committee

The head of the Slovak Deaflympics Committee (SDV), Jaromír R., was detained on the evening of February 19 during a police operation at Slovakia’s Rusovce border crossing, the SITA newswire reported.

The head of the Slovak Deaflympics Committee (SDV), Jaromír R., was detained on the evening of February 19 during a police operation at Slovakia’s Rusovce border crossing, the SITA newswire reported.

“He was definitely not caught accidentally,” Police Corps President Jaroslav Spišiak told a press conference on February 21, adding that in addition to the original accusation lodged against the individual earlier on February 19, another has been made that goes beyond the original one.

The new charges are apparently related to the organisation of the failed Deaflympics, with SITA reporting that Spišiak said the police will definitely request custody for the accused and will provide more information at a later time.

The case is being handled by the Anti-Corruption Office of the Slovak Police which is investigating because of a lawsuit filed in connection with the cancelled Olympic Games for the hearing impaired charging criminal embezzlement by the accused.
