"This person was held in a detention centre for three days [while he was identified]," said Gašpar. "From our point of view, the process will be completed when this person is transported to Slovakia," he added. He also pointed out that five international arrest warrants have been issued against Mišenka, who was carrying a Slovak passport with him when he was arrested. He is now being held in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

Mišenka is accused of involvement in several cases, including ordering the murder of his nephew, Jozef Mišenka, as well as the murder of a Bratislava underworld boss, Peter Čongrády, in 2004. Mišenka is also accused of a theft involving Sk137 million (around €5 million) in 1996.
