Prime Minister Robert Fico has dissociated himself from Justice Minister Štefan Harabin's statements about KDH MP Daniel Lipšic’s ancestry, Fico's spokesperson Silvia Glendová said on September 9.

She was reacting to an appeal from Martin Bútora (former Slovak ambassador to the U.S.A.) and other signatories to the country’s three leading authorities (president, parliamentary chairman and the prime minister).
