Prosecutor drops charges against Procházka

THE OFFICE of the Special Prosecutor dropped charges against leader of the Sieť party Radoslav Procházka, the TA3 news channel reported on January 7. He was accused of attempted tax evasion, which relates to the recording where he allegedly asks Igor Matovič, leader of the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO), to publish the advertising in his family-owned regional mailbox newspaper partially off the books.

THE OFFICE of the Special Prosecutor dropped charges against leader of the Sieť party Radoslav Procházka, the TA3 news channel reported on January 7. He was accused of attempted tax evasion, which relates to the recording where he allegedly asks Igor Matovič, leader of the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO), to publish the advertising in his family-owned regional mailbox newspaper partially off the books.

The police launched investigation of the case last September. The investigator first halted the criminal prosecution, but the prosecutor had different opinion and charged Procházka. The Sieť leader objected to the decision, the SITA newswire wrote.

“Based on the precaution of the general prosecutor from December 10, special prosecutor Dušan Kováčik was charged with supervising the case last year, who after scrutinising the investigation file and objection of accused R. P. accepted the complaint on December 18 and dismissed the decision to lay charges against R. P. as groundless,” said Jana Tökölyová, spokeswoman for the Office of the Special Prosecutor, as quoted by SITA.

The investigation file was returned to police for further proceeding, she added.

“I have not commented on the steps of the prosecutor’s office since the beginning, but loyal to the principle of the equality before the law I offered that cooperation that was asked for,” Procházka told TA3.
