Langoš must apologise to Lexa

The Bratislava III district court has ruled that MP Ján Langoš, founder of one of the first pro-democracy parties in the country, must pay an opposition MP Sk100,000 ($2,100) and apologise for calling him and his colleague "Soviet people".

The ruling was in favour of the plaintiffs Imrich Andrejčák and Ivan Lexa of the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS). Lexa, a former head of the secret service who now faces charges on seven counts of sabotage, abuse of power and fraud, fled the country in 1999 and remains in hiding.
