Slovak Helsinki Committee for Human Rights supports Malinová

The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Slovakia has voiced concern over the summoning of Hedviga Malinová for a hospital psychological examination.

The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Slovakia has voiced concern over the summoning of Hedviga Malinová for a hospital psychological examination.

The Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday, April 30 issue that the Helsinki Committee called on the Prosecutor General’s Office to stop her prosecution for perjury, dating back to 2006. Malinová (who has since married is now Žáková), 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. 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 the mental condition of Malinová at the time of her alleged 2006 attack, including by confining her to hospital, was submitted by the General Prosecutor’s Office.
