The National Criminal Agency (NAKA) have searched the house and other buildings of the former head of the anti-corruption unit, Robert Krajmer. They eventually detained Krajmer, the website reported, on September 10.

As of Friday, September 11, Krajmer was still in detention in Nitra but had not been charged so far, the SITA newswire reported.
