THE NITRA District Court has not yet set a date for the Malinová case.

THE NITRA District Court has not yet set a date for the Malinová case.

Malinová, an ethnic Hungarian who reported to have been attacked in August 2006 after two men overheard her speaking Hungarian on a phone, is now married and goes by the name Žáková. On April 2 she was accused of perjury.

The accusation consists of 58 pages and the case file exceeds 5,000 pages. Altogether 69 witnesses were interrogated in the case, and four expert reports were submitted, according to Nitra Regional Court spokesperson Mário Pivarči, who said that the judge assigned to the case first needs to study the file, the TASR newswire reported.

“Studying the file requires a certain period of time to decide whether or not the judge accepts the accusation,” he told TASR.

It is not likely that the court session will be set earlier than late May or early June 2014, TASR reported, citing unofficial information from the Nitra court.
