Slovak military intelligence allegedly involved in dodgy real estate deals
Vladimir Suchodolinsky, former military intelligence deputy chief, accused the Slovak military secret service (VSS) of siphoning off funds on military asset sales.
“[Vladimir] Suchodolinsky said he was the author of the original shredded report about the suspicion of siphoning off assets in the military intelligence service, and that he was prepared to speak about it in the parliamentary committee,” TheDaily.sk reported, May 23.
The report was later destroyed. Suchodolinsky claims that he suggested reconstructing the shredded document to his superiors last year, but the idea turned was down.
Accusations surrounding the scandal involve several prominent figures. VSS head, Lubomir Skuhra, claims that they were contrived in order to harm the agency’s reputation.
The assets were reportedly sold between 2006-2010, when current Prime Minister Robert Fico held office for the first of his two intermittent terms.
