Kramplová returns from Canada

Bratislava

Former Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Zdenka Kramplová returned to Slovakia on May 14 six months after being recalled from her post of Slovak Ambassador to Canada, TV Markíza reported. Kramplová had been appointed Ambassador on October 6, 1998 by out-going Prime Minister Vladimir Mečiar, but was recalled by the new coalition government on November 3, 1998, before she even had the chance to present her credentials in Canada.

Kramplová, who resisted a return to Slovakia despite some urging from Slovak diplomatic circles, allegedly refused to hand in her diplomatic passport during the passport control at Bratislava airport, prompting a "skirmish", the report said.
