Former Police Corps president Milan Lučanský injured his eye while exercising in the Prešov prison. He did not try to commit suicide like several media outlets have suggested, Justice Minister Mária Kolíková (Za Ľudí) told the December 13 press conference.
The initial information from the Týždeň weekly also suggested that the ex-police chief had been attacked, but this turned out to be incorrect as well.
Lučanský is currently in the prison hospital in Trenčín, where he was transported after undergoing surgery in Ružomberok.
The former police chief was detained within the Judáš (Judas) police operation and faces corruption-related charges. According to the testimonies of his former colleagues, he received more than €0.5 million in bribes in 2018 and 2019.
