Rezeš pleads insolvency

Former TV anchor Gabriela Haršányová, the mother of a 15-month-old child she had with Alexander Rezeš, the former head of the Košice steel giant VSŽ, failed to receive the child support that she requested.

A regional court judge in Košice decided on December 17 that Rezeš, believed to be one of Slovakia's richest businessmen, should pay the sum he proposed himself, not what Haršányová requested. Rezeš resides abroad, reportedly spending much of his time at his Spanish villa.

Haršányová refused to say how much she wanted from Rezeš, but reported that the judge had acknowledged Rezeš's claims to be seriously unwell and in dire financial straits. The judge said he "recognised that he can't make ends meet"

The former steel magnate's lawyer said in court that his client's standard of living was no higher than that of Rezeš's former lover, and added that Haršányová was spending the child support money on her own wants rather than on the baby girl's needs.
