Conservative Party sues Communist leader

To mark the anniversary of Czechoslovakia's occupation by Soviet armies, the non-parliamentary Civic Conservative Party (OKS) is suing Communist leader Jozef Ševc for defending the Soviet invasion, the daily SME reported.

"We honour everything that the party [KSS] has done - bad and evil equally," Sevc told the press last week.

The OKS claims that Ševc, in questioning whether the actions of the Communist regime were actually criminal, has committed the crime of promoting movements that oppress human rights. The Conservatives believe that Ševc's expression of sympathy for the past communist regime could ultimately lead to his serving a one-year prison sentence.
