Citizen crusades against Kováč

A private citizen named Ladislav Babiak established a new foundation called Kvietok, (Little Flower) aimed at forcing President Michal Kováč out of office. Babiak said he intends to give financial support to experts and journalists who write against Kováč. He added he was not afraid that Kvietok would be abolished under the new law on foundations, though the law bans foundations from supporting political aims. "This foundation does not serve political goals but the protection of human rights," Babiak told ČTK.
