“My husband is real psychopath,” Jánoš’s wife Iveta told the court, as quoted by the pluska.sk news website March 30. “He insulted me heavily in front of my daughter.”

The court banned Jánoš, who is also former vice-chairman of the parliamentary human rights committee, from seeing their 12-year-old daughter and ordered him to pay alimony reaching €600 per month, according to pluska.sk.

After he was charged with domestic abuse Jánoš spent four days in custody before he was released on €20,000 bail by the order of Prievidza District Court issued on March 9.  The prosecutor appealed against the release but Trenčín Regional Court approved the decision of Prievidza District Court.

Jánoš has announced that he has filed a criminal complaint concerning slander and the infringement of the sanctity of intimate verbal expression, claiming that “many claims, half-truths and untrue claims” have been published in the media about the case.
