Markíza fined Sk1 million for its pre-election reporting

The Supreme Court has fined television company Markíza Sk1 million (24,000 euro) for biased news reporting in the run-up to last year's general election. The television station had supported the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO), the political party run and financed by Pavol Rusko - a former director of Markíza.

Nitra-based radio station Hviedza FM was also fined for illegal advertising for the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS).
