Representatives of the Petit Press publishing house, which publishes the Sme daily as well as The Slovak Spectator weekly, have appealed against a verdict by the Bratislava I District Court in which blocked publication and distribution of a book being written by journalist Tom Nicholson, the TASR newswire reported.

Petit Press challenged the ruling by Judge Branislav Král, who accepted the claim of co-owner of the Penta financial group, Jaroslav Haščák, that the book, which allegedly deals with the Gorilla case, would violate his right to protection against defamation.

The court, however, said it would not start the appeal proceeding until Nicholson himself enters an appeal, according to the spokesperson of the Bratislava Regional Court, Pavol Adamčiak.
