General Prosecutor’s Office rejects claim about document shredding

The General Prosecutor's Office has rejected a claim made by the future general prosecutor, Jozef Čentéš, that part of documents submitted by independent MP Igor Matovič to prosecutors concerning corruption in politics was shredded by mistake. "Information that clerks shredded part of the file by mistake aren't true, as they didn't come in contact with the file and the shredding was carried out by someone else," Jana Tökölyová, spokesperson for the General Prosecutor's Office, told the TASR newswire on August 1.

On June 29, Čentéš told TA3 news TV that shredding of the document happened by mistake.

"The questioning had to be repeated again... I submitted my notes for shredding and girls, when doing that, shredded part of the statement by mistake," said Čentéš.

He added that the second questioning was identical to the first one, a fact confirmed by Matovič as well.
