THE LONG-TERM president of the Slovak Ice Hockey Association (SZĽH), Juraj Široký, was successful in reaching an out-of-court agreement with the Spoločnosť 7 Plus publishing house, approved by a Bratislava district court, in which the company agreed to publish an apology to Široký, the SITA newswire reported on December 7.

“I feel partial satisfaction for all the injustice and untrue statements which were said about me that were published in the Plus 7 Dní weekly and Plus 1 Deň daily,” Široký said. The ice hockey official and businessman sued the publisher for four articles published back in 2006.

Široký also praised a contract signed between the publishing house and the marketing department of SZĽH that will “support young ice-hockey players with the sum of €33,000”, SITA wrote.
