Slovak National Party (SNS) chairman Ján Slota alleged at a press conference on July 3 that the infamous, alleged attack on Hedviga Malinová was organised by the Hungarian secret service.

However, he refused to reveal his source of this information. He stated that no-one had as of yet published the fact that Malinová was not at the scene of the crime at the time it allegedly took place. [Malinová, a student of Hungarian origin, reported that she had been assaulted in August 2006 for speaking Hungarian. - ed. note]

In other matters, Slota also spoke about the lawsuits against the Italian company Enel that have been filed by the water-management company Vodohospodarska Výstavba and Slovakia's National Property Fund (FNM) in connection with the privatisation of Slovakia's electricity generator Slovenské Elektrárne in 2006. Since taking office two years ago, Slota has been a strident critic of SE’s privitisation to Enel. TASR
