President Schuster hospitalised during holiday in Brazil

President Rudolf Schuster, on holiday with his family in the Amazon rainforest, was taken to a hospital in Brazil July 25 suffering from dehydration. He had become exhausted during his exertions in the rainforest, officials from the Presidential Office explained.

Schuster has recently again been the target of domestic criticism, with Slovak media claiming his wife and children were issued diplomatic passports in conflict with Slovak law. An audit by the Supreme Control Office also found in mid-July that the president's staff racked up unusually high mobile phone bills last year, with some officials recording up to 300,000 crowns ($6,000) in calls.
