"Once a man jumps on a tiger's back, he can't get off it alive. You should realize what's going on in our society. You think that this style of political fighting is the best. I tell you what your ordinary supporters say. They say that they feel only one thing has to be done, and that is to arrest HZDS officials, to get rid of them in whatever way - I underline, in whatever way. Is this the path our society has chosen? Is this what you want? Don't forget that it could happen to you one day."

Ivan Hudec, HZDS deputy and former Culture Minister in the cabinet of Vladimír Mečiar, in a speech given during the vote of confidence in current Interior Minister Ladislav Pittner.

"Speaking about a ride on the tiger's back, I think that the death of [former Economy Minister and] former deputy Mr. Ducký proved who jumped on the tiger."
