“The goal of the raids is to seize accounts records that are believed to demonstrate criminal activities,” Police Corps Presidium spokesman Martin Wäldl told the TASR newswire. He added that he would provide detailed information as soon as he is allowed to do so.

A spokeswoman for Electric-power utility Slovenské elektrárne (SE) Janka Burdová said that police officers entered the offices of a former supplier responsible for completing construction work at the Mochovce (Nitra Region) plant.
