Poll: Most Slovaks don’t believe Gorilla case will be investigated

Most Slovaks are convinced that prosecutors will not succeed in investigating the Gorilla case – the case involving an alleged intelligence service document pertaining to purported secret deals between top Slovak politicians and businessmen. In a poll by the MVK agency more than 40 percent of respondents said they firmly believed the investigation would fail, while 33.6 percent thought that it would probably not succeed.

Most Slovaks are convinced that prosecutors will not succeed in investigating the Gorilla case – the case involving an alleged intelligence service document pertaining to purported secret deals between top Slovak politicians and businessmen. In a poll by the MVK agency more than 40 percent of respondents said they firmly believed the investigation would fail, while 33.6 percent thought that it would probably not succeed.

Conversely, 4.4 percent of respondents believed it would definitely succeed and 9.1 percent thought the investigation would probably be concluded successfully. More than 12 percent of those polled were not able to say what would happen, or did not have enough information to express an opinion, the TASR newswire reported, citing the MVK agency.

Compared to a similar poll from 18 months ago – when the case prompted street demonstrations – the number of those who were sure the case will not be investigated had increased most. The poll, asking whether people thought that prosecutors would manage to investigate the Gorilla case and punish those involved, was conducted between July 2 and 8 on a representative sample of 1,077 respondents, according to Pavel Haulík of MVK, as reported by TASR.
