A PROTEST in front of the General Prosecutor’s Office in Bratislava, entitled Occupy GP, was launched on the morning of May 1 and is planned to last for the entire month, the TASR newswire reported.
Activists say that since the fall of the totalitarian regime in 1989 the prosecutor’s office has done nothing to convict people in various scandals that have caused the state huge losses.
“People shouldn’t just sit at home and complain in front of the TV; they should be interested in public affairs,” one of the protest organisers, Filip Rázga, told TASR.
The activists have a long list of demands, among them providing regular information to the public about developments in the lawsuit of Penta financial group co-owner Jaroslav Haščák against journalist Tom Nicholson, along with a new investigation involving past actions of former police deputy president Stanislav Jankovič, full investigation of other alleged corruption and investigation of police tactics at one of the so-called Gorilla protests.
