THE BRATISLAVA police will not examine the criminal complaint filed by president-elect Andrej Kiska against his defeated election rival, Prime Minister Robert Fico, whom he accused of libel and aspersion, the Aktuálne.sk website reported April 24.

The police, however, will investigate the case of anonymous leaflets attacking Kiska that appeared shortly before the presidential elections.

“Based on the decision of the investigator from the Bratislava I District police headquarters the matter has been dismissed as there is not reason to launch criminal prosecution,” Vladimír Javorský, spokesman for the regional prosecutor’s office in Bratislava, told the website.

Kiska informed about submitting the criminal complaint during the press conference he held on election night after the first round of the presidential elections. He was responding to Fico claiming he was affliated with the Church of Scientology and accusing him of usury. Kiska denied both claims.

“We will wait for the official notice,” Tomáš Lehotský from Kiska’s team told Aktuálne.sk.

The Government Office responded that they respect the decisions of the criminal authorities and do not comment on them.

Regarding the anonymous leaflets, the investigator launched a prosecution for libel, Aktuálne.sk wrote.
