Charities to benefit from Slota incident

A fracas between Jan Slota, the leader of a junior coalition party, the Slovak National Party (SNS), and a police officer, Ľudmila Nováková, could benefit charities, the TASR newswire reported.

A fracas between Jan Slota, the leader of a junior coalition party, the Slovak National Party (SNS), and a police officer, Ľudmila Nováková, could benefit charities, the TASR newswire reported.

“I would like to thank all the people who decided to support me by sending me money,” Nováková wrote in a letter faxed to TASR. “I appreciate very much their sympathy and support, but I cannot accept the money.” She added that she will pass all the money on to charity organisations.

Several citizens have sent money to her after she was fined €100 by the Interior Ministry for making details of the case public.

Nováková, while on duty as a guard at the parliamentary garages, refused to admit a driver who said he was going to pick up Slota but did not have permission to enter. Slota then came to the garages himself where, the Sme daily reported, he proceeded to swear at Nováková, using a range of profanities including the c-word.

He asked her to tell him her name, which she refused to do showing him only her police officer’s identification number. After the incident Nováková wrote a report of the incident which she submitted to her superiors.

The ministry says she was right not to let the car into the garage, but erred in making the incident public.
