MP’s Assistant Sentenced over Hacking Account of Ex-Interior Minister


The assistant of Jozef Rajtar MP from Freedom and Solidarity party whom court identified solely as Filip R., is reportedly responsible for endangering banking, trade, telecommunication, postal as well as tax secrets; therefore, the District Court of Bratislava V has sentenced the guilty to suspended supervision for 3-yrs while imposed on him probation penalty for 5-yrs on 25th September, 2018.


Additionally the guilty must publicly say sorry to Robert Kalinak (Smer-SD) former interior minister and not seek employment at institutions, which handle confidential banking operations, over a 5-yr period. Nonetheless, the sentence isn't still applicable so the defendant is proceeding to make an appeal.


According to TASR news agency, Filip R., has stated that he honored whatever the court decided, albeit he didn't acquiesce with it As per his lawyer namely Marek Para, no concurrence can be drawn with what the court decided because several disputes need consideration for which he and his client have filed an appeal. Filip R., is thinking of taking his case onto a higher court -the Luxembourg headquartered European Court of Justice.


TASR quotes Jozef Rajtar MP as criticizing the lawsuit since the judge at the very start comprehended the defendant to have committed fault. Rajtar stated the judge described Filip as certain perpetrator right on the first day. While denying he ever encouraged Filip towards committing an offence, Rajtar wouldn't even testify. He claimed that being a lawmaker he could rightfully not testify for he found the entire process as a trial of witch hunt from the very start. Rajtar added that everything going on during the trial likened those observed within 3rd world countries. According to him, it was meaningless that former minister Kalinak was pretending to be the wronged party.
