The Czech prime minister in resignation, Andrej Babiš, has definitively lost a long-running dispute with Slovakia’s National Memory Institute. The Regional Court in Bratislava on Tuesday rejected a petition from Mr. Babiš, who argued that he was wrongly listed as an agent of Czechoslovakia’s communist-era secret police in the records of the Institute, which handles historical archives.
The case was being reheard after the Slovak Constitutional Court last year overturned verdicts from other courts, which had originally accepted Mr. Babiš’s assertion that he had been incorrectly listed as an StB agent.
