Majský in hospital after condition worsens

JOZEF Majský, reputedly Slovakia's richest businessman, was admitted to a prison hospital in Trenčín February 1 following a deterioration in his health since he was taken into custody three months ago.

Majský was arrested on October 24, 2002, and charged with fraud and founding a criminal group. The charges related to the collapse of a number of pyramid-type investment funds last February.

According to the TASR news agency, while in custody Majský has lost almost 30 kilograms and his hair has turned grey.

His hospitalisation was recommended by a doctor, who also suggested a psychiatric examination.
