IGOR Heriban, a Slovak real estate broker who lives in the Hungarian village of Rajka, accepted an offer for police protection after learning that he might be targeted by Hungarian radicals, the Sme daily wrote on November 13.

According to the daily, an article on Kuruc.info, a Hungarian website known for extremist views, accused Heriban of spitting on protestors who were in Rajka on November 10 to protest the Slovak government’s alleged discrimination against its Hungarian minority. The website printed Heriban’s address for anyone who wished to “explain to him how to behave towards those from whom he stole the country and to whose detriment he got rich.”

Unknown offenders recently spray-painted houses and fences of Slovaks living in Rajka, but this is the first report of an individual being threatened as a result of the worsening Slovak-Hungarian relations, the daily wrote.
