Parliament’s Mandate and Immunity Committee on Tuesday, April 27, started a disciplinary proceeding against Ján Slota, chairman of one of the ruling coalition parties, the Slovak National Party (SNS), the SITA newswire wrote.

The action was in response to an outburst by Slota directed at fellow MP Frantisek Mikloško (a member of the Conservative Democrats) in early March, during a plenary session to discuss the wording of a response to a statement made by Hungarian MEP Csanad Szegedi (Jobbik) in the European Parliament. "Mikloško, you [are the] son of a devil, ugly and disgusting, but we will forgive you, because we see you as a mentally retarded person," Slota said during the highly charged debate.

The SNS leader has 15 days from Tuesday to respond to the committee.
