Leaflet-dumper to be prosecuted

THE ATTORNEY General's office will begin prosecuting a young man charged with thwarting the preparations for the referendum on early elections. Almost 1,400 information leaflets about the referendum were found in a trash container in the western Slovak town of Trenčín.

According to the Slovak daily Pravda, the case involves a 19-year old student who, instead of distributing the leaflets in mailboxes, dumped them in the bin.
