Ján Slota faces disciplinary action over alleged misuse of SNS property

The Slovak National Party's (SNS) presidium on Monday, March 25, initiated disciplinary action against its former chairman Ján Slota over the suspicion of misuse of party property and thus the "endangering of the party's existence", the TASR newswire learned from two sources close to SNS.

The Slovak National Party's (SNS) presidium on Monday, March 25, initiated disciplinary action against its former chairman Ján Slota over the suspicion of misuse of party property and thus the "endangering of the party's existence", the TASR newswire learned from two sources close to SNS.

"I confirm this information. The disciplinary proceedings are underway. I think that a 140-year-old party should have more property than just two computers and two cars," said SNS chairman Andrej Danko for TASR. If found guilty, Slota – party chairman from 1994-2012 with a hiatus during 2001-03 when Anna Belousovová held the reins and Slota fronted the so-called Real Slovak National Party – could be rebuked, have his honorary chairmanship withdrawn or even expelled from SNS by its "party court".
