TA3 shows alleged witness of Malinová attack

The Slovak news channel TA3 on June 19 broadcast the testimony of a young man claiming to have witnessed the assault on ethnic-Hungarian student Hedviga Malinová in Nitra in August 2006.

"What I know about this case is that it took place ... it really took place, and there's a young man from Nitra who did it,” he said. “First of all, I'll tell you his initials - R.V. He does not hide it, but is trying to stay out of the public eye ... and from a source very close to him I've learned – and I've had it confirmed – that, yes, he did it."

When the TA3 reporter asked him to elaborate on what happened during the attack, he said: "I don't know the details of the story ... I only know that it took place ... so I've got a sort of silent confession from his family circle that the act took place."

[Malinová claimed that she was attacked by two skinheads in Nitra on August 25, 2006. On September 11, however, the police halted the investigation, stating that the alleged extremist attack did not take place. On May 14, 2007, Malinová was formally charged with filing a false police report. - ed. note]
