General Prosecutor’s Office accuses Malinová’s attorney of organising psychiatric conference

The General Prosecutor’s Office claims that Roman Kvasnica, the lawyer of Hedviga Malinová (who has since married and is now called Žáková), organised the international meeting of psychiatrists who assessed the case of his client, which has been going on for more than six years.

The General Prosecutor’s Office claims that Roman Kvasnica, the lawyer of Hedviga Malinová (who has since married and is now called Žáková), organised the international meeting of psychiatrists who assessed the case of his client, which has been going on for more than six years.

The General Prosecutor’s Office said, as quoted by the Sme daily, that such behaviour could be perceived as influencing the public. Kvasnica reacted that the author should first learn about the experts’ opinions before issuing any statements on the matter. Experts from several countries found a potential forcible hospital examination of Malinová’s mental state unreasoned and unethical.

Malinová, a Hungarian-speaking Slovak citizen, reported that she had been assaulted on her way to a university exam in Nitra in August, 2006. The police concluded their investigation in September 2006 by finding that no attack had actually occurred. The announcement was made at a press conference by then (and current) interior minister Robert Kaliňák and Prime Minister Robert Fico, at which Kaliňák said that “it is beyond doubt that the case did not happen”, supporting his assertion with several pieces of what he claimed were evidence, including DNA samples. Kaliňák later went on to denounce Malinová as a “pathological liar”.

In May 2007 Malinová was charged with lying to police and making false claims but her case has never been presented before a court. The demand to examine her mental state, involving confining her to a hospital, was submitted by the Office of the General Prosecutor.
