"I feel like I'm in a madhouse where everyone has lost their memories. Do you remember the stance you took after the kidnap of the president's son? Do you remember the cynical arguments you put forth surrounding the murder of Robert Remiaš? Do you remeber the telephone conversation between the then-secret service boss [Ivan Lexa] and [Interior] Minister Hudek? Do remember when someone poured manure on me? No, you don't remember, and I can't say I'm surprised."
Interior Minister Ladislav Pittner during a 12 hour debate in parliament on his recall, intiated by the opposition HZDS party. He survived the vote of confidence by a margin of 77 in support to 51 for his removal.
