In July 2017, police started investigating Vladimír Mečiar on suspicion of having committed a crime. On August 10, the police reported that they will not prosecute the amnesties as the case is time-barred.
Bratislava police, however, reopened the case at the end of October 2017, because the General Prosecutor’s office said that the decision of the investigator was premature.
