The Slovak police have turned down a criminal complaint concerning the alleged phone calls between ex-prime minister Robert Fico (Smer) and alleged Italian mafia figure Antonino Vadala.

The investigator subsequently turned it down following a phone call with the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) and the Financial Administration's inspectorate who are dealing with Vadala's crimes, he added for the SITA newswire.
