Sme: Alleged gang boss released

A suspect named only as Libor J., who is considered to be the head of one of Bratislava’s main organised crime gangs, was released from custody on Monday, March 18, the Sme daily reported. A Bratislava court found that there was not enough evidence to prove the criminal charges laid against him and set him free.

A suspect named only as Libor J., who is considered to be the head of one of Bratislava’s main organised crime gangs, was released from custody on Monday, March 18, the Sme daily reported. A Bratislava court found that there was not enough evidence to prove the criminal charges laid against him and set him free.

Court spokesman Pavol Adamčiak told the Sme daily that if acquitted, a suspect must be released immediately, even if the verdict in their case has not been officially published.

Libor J. was charged with blackmailing a man who sold him a car by demanding “a fine” from him after the car broke down. In a second instance, J. was alleged to have put pressure on an architect commissioned to establish a business for J. in the Bratislava borough of Dlhé Diely.

On Wednesday, the special department of the General Prosecutor’s Office filed an appeal against the verdict, Sme reported.
