ETHNIC Hungarian student Hedviga Malinová, who claims that she was a victim of an ethnically-motivated attack and was charged with making the whole story up, is taking her case to the European Court for Human Rights, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote.
Malinová complained about the inhumane and humiliating attitude of Slovak investigation bodies towards her during their investigation of the case. She is not seeking financial compensation, the Aktualne.sk website wrote.
In late August 2006, Malinová told police that she was assaulted in the Nitra town park by two skinheads on her way to school after she was speaking Hungarian. On September 11, 2006, police stopped the investigation, stating the crime never happened and Malinová fabricated the whole thing.
She was then charged with providing a false statement to police. Her lawyer, Roman Kvasnica, said Malinová is being prosecuted unlawfully.
