Former secret service deputy chief Jaroslav Svechota died

Tue 09 Nov 04, 14:54    RSI

Jaroslav Svechota, former secret service deputy chief under Vladimir Meciar's last government, died in Bratislava on Monday. Svechota, facing charges of abuse of office, was hospitalised due to serious spinal problems on October 7. He served under former Secret Service Director's Ivan Lexa. Svechota was held on remand for several months after the investigation into the 1995 kidnapping of Michal Kovac Jr., son of the former president, began. The most-recent case in which Svechota was implicated involved the embezzlement of EUR 276,000.
