Belousovová: We're considering suing Csáky

The junior coalition Slovak National Party (SNS) is still considering filing legal action against ethnic-Hungarian SMK party leader Pál Csáky for statements that he made about the SNS, SNS vice-chair Anna Belousovová told SLOVAKIA on March 25.

The junior coalition Slovak National Party (SNS) is still considering filing legal action against ethnic-Hungarian SMK party leader Pál Csáky for statements that he made about the SNS, SNS vice-chair Anna Belousovová told SLOVAKIA on March 25.

Csáky allegedly said at an official meeting in Budapest at the end of 2007 that the SNS is an extremist and ultra-nationalist party, whose membership in the Government has shifted the centre of Slovak politics towards nationalism.

SNS has sought redress for these statements in Parliament, but the parliamentary mandate and immunity committee refused to discuss them, as they weren't made on the floor of parliament. Belousovová said she regretted that SNS's proposal in the committee wasn't supported by coalition partners ĽS-HZDS and Smer-SD. According to her, the committee could have dealt with the move, as Csáky's words don't concern only SNS, but are damaging the image of Slovakia as a whole. TASR
