Interior Ministry releases review of police action at Gorilla Protest

A review undertaken the Interior Ministry reported that a police action taken at a Gorilla Protest on March 9 in Bratislava was adequate and appropriate.

A review undertaken the Interior Ministry reported that a police action taken at a Gorilla Protest on March 9 in Bratislava was adequate and appropriate.

The review rejected a criminal motion by Štefan Potocký and Filip Rázga, said Lucia Garajová of the ministry’s communication department to the Pravda daily. These individuals and others had filed a motion with the General Prosecutor’s Office in March citing “abuse of powers of a public official by an unknown person and use of gross violence against a group of people”.

The review states that the crowd of protesters who tried to come close to the Slovak parliament building that day was aggressive and threw stones, tiles, and various items at police officers, while also dousing the police with liquids. When demonstrators refused to disperse after several calls by the police to do so, the police started their intervention, Pravda wrote.
