Reader Feedback: I have my doubts

I must express my doubt about two statements of Mr. Meciar ["Vladimír Mečiar: No time for Harvard", by Tom Nicholson and Martina Pisárová, Vol. 7 No. 39, October 15-21]:

a) That he was considered an enemy of the regime by Husak's group after 1968.

b) That he got a passport for the first time only in 1990, and that he never travelled to any Western country before that year.

I still wonder how it could happen that he became a high profile politician in Slovakia. If, after all this, he is so eager to come back, then there must be something at stake.
