Ethnic-Hungarian student Hedviga Malinová said on May 31 that the statements made by Ján Slota, head of the governing coalition Slovak National Party (SNS), about her former boyfriend being a member of an extremist Hungarian movement were absurd.
Malinová, who has been charged with giving a false statement to the police last year when she claimed that she was attacked by skinheads in Nitra for speaking Hungarian, said that her current boyfriend is her first partner and that he is pure Slovak.
At a press conference on Thursday, Slota said that his party possesses unconfirmed information that Malinová is preparing to leave the country to give a speech to the European Parliament before travelling on to the US.
Malinová denied that she is planning to leave the country, adding that she is focusing on her university exams at the moment.
