THE POLICE will not prosecute deputy head of the Military Intelligence (VS) Robert Tibenský, after concluding he has not committed any crimes, the Sme daily reported. The daily broke a story on January 2 that he is investigated after former employee of the Defence Ministry has accused him abusing his post, having a car accident under the influence and of lying about the area of his opulent apartment in a prominent city in Israel.

Tibenský denied the accusations. According to him, it might be a personal revenge of a former ministry employee.

The former employee of the ministry said that Tibenský allegedly committed the crimes in 2008-11 when he served as military attaché in Israel. He filed a criminal motion in August 2013, but the police dismissed it on December 18, two days after Sme inquired the story.

The investigator said that all the allegations were not criminal but rather disciplinary matters for the VS. Moreover, the two-year statute of limitation has already expired, she added, as reported by Sme.

The Defence Ministry has no comment on the case, saying it should at first read the official results of investigation, said ministry spokesperson Martina Balleková.
