A suspicious letter delivered to the mayor of Banská Bystrica, Peter Gogoľa, which was opened on Tuesday, January 3, by an employee at the city's municipal offices, did not contain anthrax, said Banská Bystrica Regional Public Health-Care Office spokesperson Mária Tolnayová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

A suspicious letter delivered to the mayor of Banská Bystrica, Peter Gogoľa, which was opened on Tuesday, January 3, by an employee at the city's municipal offices, did not contain anthrax, said Banská Bystrica Regional Public Health-Care Office spokesperson Mária Tolnayová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Banská Bystrica firefighters took the suspicious letter, which contained a white powder, to the specialised laboratories of the Medical Bacteriology, Bacteriological Weapons and Bioterrorism Department. The letter had been addressed to the city's mayor. Despite the apparently non-toxic nature of the letter's contents, police have launched an investigation into the case.
