The actions of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA), which invited organisers of the For a Decent Slovakia protest gatherings to hearings last week, will be reviewed by the police. In connection with the hearings, Police Corps President Milan Lučanský has ordered a more precise analysis of the case.

“After reading it I found that there were inconsistencies between the information I had received from NAKA’s leadership and the reality,” the police published Lučanský’s statement on Facebook, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

There were several discrepancies such as the differences in time periods, while the superior officer did not correctly evaluate the situation after receiving the complaint. This is why Lučanský has ordered the inspection.

“I will take measures after it is over,” he added, as quoted by SITA.

Police Corps spokesperson Andrea Dobiášová confirmed the information during the talk show broadcast by the private news channel TA3. As she added, during the November 13 press conference Lučanský worked only with limited information.

The results from the inspection will be available after Lučanský returns from his working trip.

As Lučanský said during a pre-recorded interview, altogether six criminal complaints were submitted against the organisers of the For a Decent Slovakia gatherings, four of which were turned down by the police.

Of the remaining two, one was the anonymous one presented by the media, while the other was submitted by a specific person, SITA wrote.

Lučanský has already said in the past that he can imagine changes at NAKA, currently led by Peter Hraško. However, since he is only a temporary Police Corps president, he does not want to make fundamental organisational changes, SITA wrote.

Lučanský has already made changes to important positions at NAKA’s anti-crime and anti-corruption unit.
