SaS party seeks special session of parliament to review the Gorilla case

MPs from the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party are seeking to collect 30 signatures from MPs to convene a special session of parliament to discuss the Gorilla case, reportedly involving top politicians during the second government term of Mikuláš Dzurinda from 2002-2006, the SITA newswire reported.

MPs from the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party are seeking to collect 30 signatures from MPs to convene a special session of parliament to discuss the Gorilla case, reportedly involving top politicians during the second government term of Mikuláš Dzurinda from 2002-2006, the SITA newswire reported.

So far SaS has only the signatures of its 18 MPs and the Speaker of Parliament is obliged to call a special session only if 30 MPs sign such a proposal.

The Slovak National Party (SNS) announced that it would not support calling such as session, SITA reported on January 9. The chairman of the Smer party, Robert Fico, told SITA his party would only support convening a special session of parliament on the Gorilla files only if those individuals who are seeking it present arguments on how it would shed further light on the situation.

At a press conference on January 9, Fico recommended that SaS leave the investigation of the situation to law enforcement authorities.
