Alleged bug in Miškov's car damaged, prosecution halted

The object that was found in former economy minister Juraj Miškov's car and which Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) vice-chairman Miškov called eavesdropping equipment turned out to be damaged, spokesperson for Bratislava Regional Police headquarters Petra Hrášková told the TASR newswire on Tuesday, June 5.

The object that was found in former economy minister Juraj Miškov's car and which Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) vice-chairman Miškov called eavesdropping equipment turned out to be damaged, spokesperson for Bratislava Regional Police headquarters Petra Hrášková told the TASR newswire on Tuesday, June 5.

"We sent the equipment for expert analysis. This has shown that the object seized was rendered defective and so couldn't be used as wiretapping equipment," said Hrášková. Consequently, police have halted the investigation into the matter.

"I had no expectations concerning the matter. I left it all up to the investigating authorities from the get-go," said Miškov on Tuesday, adding that he has no idea who could have planted wiretapping equipment in his car. The former minister announced on April 18 that an Economy Ministry driver had found a device that could have been used for eavesdropping in a ministry car used by Miškov for private purposes during his term in office.
