Communist MEP Ransdorf seeks to clear up suspicions of fraud


Communist MEP Miloslav Ransdof held a press conference on Thursday to explain his arrest by Swiss police at the end of last year. Mr. Ransdorf and three Slovak acquaintances were detained in a Zurich bank on December 3 on suspicion of fraud. Mr Ransdorf previously confirmed that he was acting on behalf of Vladimír Huněk, a man who has been on police files for over 12 years, who allegedly had an inheritance to the tune of one million euro on the Swiss account. Peter Guzmický, one of the detained Slovaks, told the journalists on Thursday that the documents concerning Mr Huněk’s inheritance, allegedly issued by a Czech court, were genuine.
