A former high-ranking officer of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) was detained on Thursday March 9 in Komárno. He is suspected of cooperation with the underworld of Dunajská Streda, the Markíza TV reported.

Interior Ministry spokesperson Andrea Dobiášová confirmed the information.

"The investigator accused the man of accepting bribes and other crimes," she said.

Markíza reported that the arrest of the former officer of the elite police unit in Nitra is linked with the intervention against men who allegedly belong to the mafia of Dunajská Streda. The men were detained in May 2016 and the information they shared with the police led the investigators to the former NAKA officer.
