King versus Slovak Television case opens

COURT proceedings initiated several years ago by Stanislav Babinský, the so-called King of Orava, versus the public broadcaster Slovak television (STV) finally began on March 6.

The King of Orava had sued STV over what he though was an inaccurate TV documentary about him. The businessman was sentenced to 14 years for a crime then defined as stealing socialist property during communism. However, he was granted amnesty one year after the fall of communism in 1989.

Due to court delays the King has lodged a complaint with the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg to the effect that his case has not been dealt with in a reasonable time.
