SaS boss gives police ‘evidence of corruption’ relating to general prosecutor vote

The Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) chairman Richard Sulík appeared at the police’s Office for the Fight Against Corruption (ÚBOK) on Tuesday, February 28, where he gave evidence about the alleged buying of MPs’ votes during the protracted selection process to choose Slovakia’s general prosecutor. His involvement and knowledge about the case and its circumstances have been heavily reported based on covert video recordings shot in the house of businessman Marián Kočner that show Sulík and Kočner in conversation. The recordings were uploaded to the internet by an unknown person.

The recordings were uploaded to the internet by an unknown person.

Sulík provided the investigators with e-mail communication between him and Kočner which is – according to Sulík – proof that Kočner has information about which MPs in the former ruling coalition voted for opposition candidate Dobroslav Trnka. "I will not comment on any further questions," said Sulík, as quoted by the SITA newswire, adding that he had already told the police investigator everything.
