Schuster gets death threat

Slovak President Rudolf Schuster has been sent a death threat via e-mail. The mail, which Schuster received on October 17, said that the president and his family would be shot dead by December 1.

"This is not a joke. I will do it because in the presidential elections you beat a man who is 100 times a better Slovak than you - Vladimír Mečiar, the leader of the Slovak nation," read part of the message.

Police have so far been unable to identify where the mail was sent from, but an address given on the mail was for a man from Banská Štiavnica who is currently living in Italy.

It is the first death threat Schuster has received.
