A Specialised Criminal Court judge on Saturday, August 20, decided that Martin Novotný, former external advisor of Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, should be remanded in custody.

Novotný has been charged with corruption concerning the subsidies for the biathlon facilities in Osrblie (Banská Bystrica Region). He returned to Slovakia on Wednesday, August 17, from a holiday in the USA and was subsequently questioned regarding the allegations. Investigators on Friday asked that he be remanded over fears that he might try to interfere with the investigation.
