Nationalist leader facing court case

ANNA Malíková, head of the Slovak National Party (SNS) may face legal action for alleging that the Roma mayor of the eastern Slovak village of Žehra paid Sk38,000 ($826) in tax payer money for a flight that he had presented as a wedding gift to

his daughter.

The mayor, Jozef Mižigár, said he was considering suing Malíková. The nationalist leader told the private Sita press agency that on the last weekend of July there was a wedding in Spišské Podhradie with an unemployed 19-year-old Roma marrying Mižigár's daughter. According to Malíková the groom came to pick up his bride in a helicopter.

Mižigár said that there indeed was a wedding in Spišské Podhradie that weekend but denied that his daughter was the bride.

"The oldest of my three daughters is an elementary school pupil," he said.
