An anonymous e-mail was sent to various Slovak media this afternoon containing a link to a website where the unknown senders say they will release audio and video recordings incriminating top Slovak politicians mentioned in the Gorilla corruption affair.
The message on the internet site says “politicians mentioned in Gorilla have 48 hours to withdraw from their party election slates”, or the recordings exposing them will be unleashed. The statement says it is their last chance to stand down without being publicly disgraced. The website to be used for publishing the recordings and other materials is the same as the one that the Gorilla reports were published on.
The website currently shows a picture of various politicians and President Ivan Gasparovic, but not everyone was around at the time of Gorilla, like independent MP Igor Matovic or head of the SaS party Richard Sulik. Daily SME pointed out how the image did not contain pictures of anyone from the 99%-Civil Voice party.
It could all be a bluff, but given the effects of the last publication (the Gorilla reports themselves), this could be the kind of revelation to shake up the election campaign for some. The recordings should go live at 7.45 pm tomorrow, while the websites of all political parties are to be attacked at the same time.
