Rafaj: I haven't forged signatures

Coalition SNS caucus chairman Rafael Rafaj told members of Parliament's Mandate and Immunity Committee on June 19 that he never forged the signature of his party chairman, Ján Slota, onto Parliament’s attendance sheet. Slota confirmed that the signatures were authentic, and thus the inquiry ended for the committee, the TASR newswire wrote.

Slota confirmed that the signatures were authentic, and thus the inquiry ended for the committee, the TASR newswire wrote.

"It's clearly specified in the law when disciplinary proceedings can begin," commitee chair Renata Zmajkovičová (Smer-SD) said, adding that suspicion isn't a sufficient reason for beginning disciplinary proceedings.

Slota was surprised by the number of journalists interested in the committee's session. Rafaj described the video provided by the Sme daily as “amateur”, and suggested he could provide the same on anyone. TASR
