The National Criminal Agency (NAKA) has stopped criminal prosecution concerning the alleged blackmailing of former president Andrej Kiska by ex-prime minister Robert Fico.
The investigator ruled it was not a criminal act, police spokesperson Denisa Bárdyová confirmed for the private broadcaster TV JOJ.
As Kiska told the media, Fico allegedly threatened him in January 2019 when he planned on becoming the Constitutional Court president. The ex-PM reportedly claimed that if the then-president did not appoint Fico, he would launch attacks on the president.
