VLADIMÍR Mečiar, the leader of the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) has sued the 7Plus company, the publisher of the Plus 7 Dní weekly, for allegedly publishing untrue information about him. He is asking for €99,582 in damages. The Bratislava Regional Court held a hearing on the lawsuit on September 2, the TASR newswire reported.

Mečiar sued the weekly after it published information on how it said Mečiar financed his villa Elektra in Trenčianske Teplice, as well as about Mečiar’s mental health. Mečiar’s attorney claimed that readers of the article might have received the impression that money for the villa was gained in an unlawful way and that Mečiar is mentally ill.

The court of first instance already has ruled that the weekly should apologise to Mečiar but it did not order any damages to be paid. Mečiar appealed against that ruling.
