Reader feedback: Look at the record

Re: Fine-tuning reformsm, Flash News, October 25, 2005-10-26

How anyone can admire a character like Vladimír Mečiar, regardless of all the wanton acts of graft and corruption he has been charged with, is beyond comprehension. How did he get the money to pay for his mansion?

One should look at his record with an open mind and one can, without difficulty, tell that he is an unethical character.
