Police apprehended a 45-year-old woman for questioning yesterday in connection with the bomb scares at the Supreme Court, the Ministry of Interior and the Prosecutor’s Office.
The woman is from the district of Levice (Nitra region) and is suspected of making the hoax bomb scares at the three institutions, which led to them being evacuated until police were sure there were no bombs present.
The bomb threats were made by anonymous phone call on Thursday morning, but all of them were found to be false. Police found the woman’s mobile phone that she used for the threats. “Further investigation will reveal whether the suspect is also the perpetrator here,” said spokesman for Bratislava Police Corps, Frantisek Peczar.
