After Special Prosecutor Dušan Kováčik, the police have come for their own former bosses, including former top police officer Tibor Gašpar and former head of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) anti-corruption unit Róbert Krajmer. On Sunday, the Specialised Criminal Court sent six of the eight arrested people to pre-trial custody.
The detained former top police officers face charges of organised crime. The police have described an organised group, headed by Nitra-based businessman Norbert Bödör, also in pre-trial custody, that worked within the police and the judiciary. The Slovak Spectator will bring a more detailed report on the charges this week.
