Police initiated a prosecution in connection with the blog called Vrahovia medzi nami (Murderers Among Us) which opened a debate over president Ivan Gašparovič’s whereabouts at the time of a hunting trip during which forester Michal Bobák was fatally shot by accident, the private TV channel Markíza informed.

The TASR newswire quoted Markíza as reporting that the President’s Office filed a criminal complaint, and in the words of the president’s spokesperson Marek Trubač, the blog "spreads rumours on how the president killed a man”. The case is allegedly being dealt with by an investigator of the National Criminal Agency. “He opened a prosecution in the case, for the crime of libel but no specific person has been charged so far,” spokesman of the Police Presidium Michal Slivka told Markíza.
