Nitra District Court issues international arrest warrant for Karol Mello

The District Court in Nitra last week issued an international warrant for the arrest of Karol Mello, the Nitra Regional Court spokesman, Oliver Kolenčík, told the TASR newswire on July 18.

The warrant proposal was submitted to the District Court in Nitra by the Special Task Force Department of the General Prosecutor's Office.

Mello, the alleged organiser of a double murder in the village of Most pri Bratislave in 2004 was detained in Poland last autumn after several years in hiding. He was extradited to Slovakia in April 2011 and then remanded to custody but that decision was ruled improper on the order of Bratislava Regional Court. Mello subsequently disappeared.

Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská has filed a complaint against the Regional Court’s ruling with the Supreme Court. Mello was allegedly involved in organising the murder of a former police officer in Most pri Bratislave but the hit men mistakenly shot at a car driven by the former officer's partner and his son, age 11, killing both.
