The chief of police also postponed the warrant in protest against a special forces initiative, he added. Pocivalsek, who according to local media, is suspected of causing damage to the state budget in the purchase of medical equipment, rejected all charges and was released in the evening after searches carried out in his home and office.

Conservative Prime Minister Janez Jansa intervened in defense of the minister talking about a politically motivated operation, supported by the opposition to destabilize the situation and put the government in difficulty.
