Malinová case: Forensic expert says Hedviga has ‘bad blood’

A medical expert in the disputed case of student Hedviga Žáková, nee Malinová, states that bruises and lip laceration she suffered in 2006 were caused by her poor blood coagulation, the Sme daily has reported. The author of a report into Malinová’s apparently severe beating, forensic expert and dean of the Medical School of Comenius University Peter Labaš, goes on to declare in his report that she was not in fact assaulted and that her injuries were self-inflicted. However, apart from her blood condition, he presented no new evidence, nor any new explanation of the case, the daily wrote.

The author of a report into Malinová’s apparently severe beating, forensic expert and dean of the Medical School of Comenius University Peter Labaš, goes on to declare in his report that she was not in fact assaulted and that her injuries were self-inflicted. However, apart from her blood condition, he presented no new evidence, nor any new explanation of the case, the daily wrote.

Malinová’s attorney Roman Kvasnica considers the whole report confusing and a mere waste of time. “We have lost time, and Hedviga has been prosecuted for five years now,” he told Sme. Labaš did not comment on the report.

In August 2006 Malinová reported being assaulted on her way to university in Nitra, after being overheard talking in Hungarian into her mobile phone. Police later accused her of making up the story. She was also accused of false testimony and swearing a false oath. The man who filed the motion against her later committed suicide, Sme reported.
