ELECTION 2012: Weiss says he took lie-detector test over registration process of 99 Percent

Ivan Weiss, a leading candidate of the new 99 Percent – Civic Voice party said on Wednesday, March 7, that he had submitted to a polygraph test to answer whether he was aware that any 99 Percent member could have falsified the registration signatures on behalf of the party and whether he could confirm that 99 Percent had submitted at least 10,000 valid registration signatures to the Interior Ministry. At a press conference featuring other 99 Percent candidates, it was reported that Weiss answered 'no' to the first question and 'yes' to the second question. He claimed that he passed the test, carried out by British expert Terry Mullins in Bratislava, and received a certificate to prove it. Mullins did not appear at the press conference.

"It's important for me that people know they can trust us," Weiss said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. 99 Percent has objected to a police investigation into reports that the registration petition submitted by the party in December contained numerous falsified signatures. The party claims the investigation is politicised and intended to destroy the party.
