Sakova: Fico's Security to be Extended in Duration, Serious Reasons Abound


      Bratislava, September 12 (TASR) - The Interior Ministry will approve the request lodged by Smer-SD chair Robert Fico to extend the period of time during which Fico has a security detail assigned, Interior Minister Denisa Sakova (Smer-SD) announced after the Government session on Wednesday.
      "We've got serious reasons to believe that his health and life might be in danger," stated Sakova, adding that she can't detail any closer information, as it is confidential.
      According to Sakova, Fico will have the security detail assigned until further notice. "We'll be re-evaluating on a monthly basis and if the reasons are no longer present, the protected individual will lose the right to protection," she said.
      Sakova added that the former prime minister hasn't asked for the provision of a motor vehicle. "In his application, he reported that he's already using cars belonging to Smer-SD party," she said.
      Former interior minister Robert Kalinak (2012-18) hasn't asked for extension of the assignment of his security detail.
