Satirist suspected of threatening a journalist

A CELEBRITY satirist is suspected of sending threatening emails to a female journalist.

The comedian Milan Markovič has been charged by police for violence against an individual. Police allegedly discovered that Markovic had sent the email on June 21 from a Slovak Telecom mobile internet truck.

Police refused to comment on the case, but the journalist involved, Renáta Klačanská, editor in chief of the Slovak daily Zivot and a host for a political talk show with the private Joj TV channel, said that she has never had any conflicts with the comedian.

In March this year, an unknown perpetrator gave Klačanská's car flat tires, and three weeks later, someone set her car on fire.

Some time later, Klačanská received an email that said: "Just like your tires can't get air, soon you too won't be able to get it. You will not stop fearing. I know about every step you make. I am with you all the time. Will you go for a holiday? I will be there. A time bomb is ticking and the end will be cruel."

Markovič insisted that he had nothing to do with the case and that he has already talked to his lawyer regarding the allegations.

"It is complete nonsense. It is a mystery how this could happen," he said.
