Court dismisses Bugár's libel lawsuit against Pál Csáky

The Bratislava II District Court refused on Tuesday, June 7 to hear Béla Bugár’s suit against his former colleague Pál Csáky, formerly leader of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK).

The Bratislava II District Court refused on Tuesday, June 7 to hear Béla Bugár’s suit against his former colleague Pál Csáky, formerly leader of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK).

Bugár, who is now chairman of the Most-Híd party, sued Csáky for statements published in the Új Szó daily alleging that the creation of Most-Híd was against the interests of Slovakia’s Hungarian community and was devised solely as a means of advancing the interests of the Most-Híd party's founders.

The court dismissed the lawsuit altogether. Csáky said later he would consider further appeals an indication of childish self-esteem on the part of Bugár. Most-Híd spokeswoman Nora Czuczorová told the SITA newswire that Bugár did plan to file an appeal.
