Parliamentary Chairman Pavol Paška will meet with Slovak National Party (SNS) chairman Ján Slota and SNS caucus chairman Rafael Rafaj on May 20 to discuss reports by the Sme daily that Rafaj forged Slota's signature onto parliament’s attendance list, the TASR newswire was informed by Paška's spokesman, Jozef Plško.

"We will publish additional information after the meeting," added Plško on May 19.

After monitoring the attendance list for a week, the Sme daily wrote that Rafaj signed Slota’s name on May 13, 14 and 15, even though Slota was only present on May 13.

The penalty for two unexcused absences from parliament is a 50-percent reduction in an MP’s monthly salary. Four unexcused absences results in all the salary being withheld. TASR
