Leaked Mafia lists outrage Slovakia’s attorneys

The Slovak Bar Association (SAK) called the leaked lists with names of people allegedly connected to the Mafia as a scandalous interference in the rights of attorneys that harms their reputation, the Pravda daily reported on October 10.

The Slovak Bar Association (SAK) called the leaked lists with names of people allegedly connected to the Mafia as a scandalous interference in the rights of attorneys that harms their reputation, the Pravda daily reported on October 10.

“Attorneys appeared there [in the lists] through doing their jobs and defending people against whom the criminal proceeding was held, i.e. who are accused or charged,” stated the presidium of the SAK, asking that the police strictly distinguish between the accused and their representatives.

The Interior Ministry said it does not want to change the lists and Police President Jaroslav Spišiak said the lists do not contain only the names of attorneys but also the names of business partners of people that are suspected of committing crimes even though these people are not under investigation.

Police are still trying to find the person responsible for the leak of so-called ‘mafia lists’. Spišiak promised to reveal the name as soon as the police finish the investigation.
