The Interior Ministry has filed a criminal complaint concerning the abuse of power of a public official and unauthorised use of personal data in the so-called mafia lists case, Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic announced on Tuesday, October 4.

Lipšic said, as quoted by the TASR newswire, that the investigation was launched due to the fact that the personal data of people mentioned on the lists had been made available to Nový Čas and TV Markíza despite being classified as confidential. The case is being handled internally under the Inspectorate Division of the ministry.

Two separate lists of people allegedly connected to various organised crime groups have appeared in the media recently. They contain more than 40 names with pictures and detailed personal data. The SITA newswire wrote that Nový Čas published the lists without surnames and personal data, while TV Markíza disclosed the list with surnames, birth-registry numbers, car licence plate numbers and gun-licence numbers as well as photographs.
