Head of the National Crime Agency Milan Tököly has told the Hospodárske Noviny daily that the police will now start another criminal prosecution into the matter.

Though Tököly said he did not want to specify what the investigation will concern, the daily reported that it will focus on allegations of bribery involving the Penta financial group. Penta has denied unlawfully influencing the privatisation, which in the event never proceeded.
