Gašparovič worried about doubts cast on Slovak justice by the EP

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič, appearing on TV Markiza's weekly politics show 'Na Telo' on June 17, said that he is worried about recent comments casting doubt on Slovakia's justice system, which were made by MEP Edit Bauer of the Party of the Hungarian Coalition in the European Parliament (EP).

Bauer’s comments were in relation to the Malinová case. Hedviga Malinová is an ethnic-Hungarian university student who claimed to have been beaten up by two skinheads in August 2006 for speaking in Hungarian on her mobile. Police investigators have claimed that she made the whole story up and have taken her to court for giving the police a false statement.

"A politician has no right to cast doubts on a case that is still only in the hands of the investigating authorities, and such a case definitely shouldn't be brought into an arena such as the European Parliament," said Gašparovič.
