Čižnár: Malinová case to be concluded by end of this year

“We’ll try to wrap up the Hedviga Žáková-Malinová case by the end of the year because the procedure has been unreasonably long,” General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár announced on November 21. With regard to the case, Čižnár said back on June 17 that either there is evidence that she committed a crime or there isn’t.

“We’ll try to wrap up the Hedviga Žáková-Malinová case by the end of the year because the procedure has been unreasonably long,” General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár announced on November 21.

With regard to the case, Čižnár said back on June 17 that either there is evidence that she committed a crime or there isn’t.

“This case isn’t too difficult to decide on. Do we have enough evidence to press charges or don’t we?" he said back in June, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Žáková-Malinová, a Hungarian-speaking Slovak citizen, reported that she was assaulted on her way to a university exam in Nitra in August 2006. Police concluded their investigation in September 2006, finding that no attack had occurred. The announcement was made at a press conference by then (and now again) 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 Žáková-Malinová as a “pathological liar”, the Sme daily wrote.

State authorities charged Žáková-Malinová with perjury in 2007.
