SNS boss has eight party members suspended

Anna Malíková, the chair of the far-right opposition Slovak National Party (SNS), on July 28 succeeded in having the party memberships of eight SNS members of parliament suspended for a year by the party's central committee.

The suspended SNS members, including former SNS boss and Žilina Mayor Ján Slota, had previously demanded Malíková give up her post because, they claimed, she had damaged the reputation of the party by marrying a Russian national who was formerly wanted by Interpol.
