Slovakia’s special prosecutor is asking for another European and international arrest warrant for Karol Mello, the alleged mafia boss who is accused of organising a double murder in the village of Most pri Bratislave in 2004, the Pravda daily reported.

The special prosecutor has also announced that he believes Mello was involved in the murder of Peter Čongrády, the alleged boss of the Bratislava underworld.

The spokesperson for the Specialised Criminal Court, Katarína Kudjaková, told Pravda that the court received the official request on June 8 but has not ruled on it yet.

After Mello was in hiding for several years, a Polish special police force arrested him in October 2010 but he was released in May 2011 by Slovak courts, reportedly due to procedural errors by a court. After being detained again, he filed a complaint and was released from pre-trial custody for a second time later in the same month. He has been at large since then.
