Anti-HZDS graffiti in Ducký's home town


Threatening graffiti addressed to Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) MP's has begun appearing in Lehota pod Vtačníkom, the birthplace of murdered former Economy Minister Ján Ducký. Writings such as "HZDS - revenging swine" and municipal election campaign posters featuring HZDS MP's at the gallows have been reported on walls, houses and at the gates of the private homes of local HZDS officials.

Michal Gašparovič, chairman of the local HZDS organisation, has stated that he believes the "insults" are in response to the suggestions of local MP's that Ducký be given praise in memoriam for his contributions to the town.

Anti-HZDS graffiti has also been spotted on shop walls, homes and other buildings in nearby Prievidza. The case is currently under investigation by the Prievidza police department.
