The stories were about car thefts allegedly perpetrated by Slota in Austria when he was young. The court also ruled that the publisher must apologise to Slota for untrue and disparaging statements and that the apologies must include the statement: "The given statements were not true. The company 7 Plus unlawfully violated the legally-protected personal rights of Ján Slota by its steps in question”.

The company was also ordered to remove the electronic versions of the articles from its internet archives, SITA wrote.
