Although Jaromír Čižnár is the highest-ranked prosecutor in the country, this reportedly did not stop the police from screening him. He is said to have been monitored about 200 times,the private broadcaster TV JOJ reported.
“The general prosecutor considers it absurd, something that must not happen in the country with the functioning rule of law,” the General Prosecutor's Office spokesperson Andrea Predajňová told the broadcaster on October 29.Read alsoRead more
Čižnár has evidence that the screenings occurred and is ready to demand an explanation from the police.
“The only question is who considered him so troublesome to not hesitate to abuse their position this way,” Predajňová added.
Kočner's plots against Čižnár
The suspicion of the unlawful screenings of the general prosecutor is now being handled by the regional prosecutor's office in Bratislava. The police inspectorate will then proceed with further actions, said Matej Izakovič, a spokesperson for the regional prosecutor's office in Bratislava, as quoted by TV JOJ.
The broadcaster also reported that Čižnár was monitored at the end of 2017 and in early 2018. Mobster Marian Kočner reportedly ordered that the general prosecutor be monitored on the day Slovakia learned about the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée.Related articleRead more
The General Prosecutor's Office claimed it was because Čižnár took measures that were against Kočner's will.
Who issued the order?
The inspectorate is supposed to find out whether the police actually helped screen Čižnár in their databases.
Former police corps president Tibor Gašpar has denied ordering the screenings, TV JOJ reported. Gašpar resigned shortly after the murder of Kuciak.
