Gašparovič, whose second term as president ended last year, was admitted to hospital May 31. According to sources contacted by the TASR newswire, the operation was planned in advance.   

Denník N added that the National Oncology Institute (NOU) press department informed that it was preparing a press statement concerning Gašparovič’s admission to hospital. Citing the Health Care Act, NOU spokeswoman Viktória Vasilenková said, however, that the facility can only provide information on a patient’s health condition to the patient concerned, his or her relatives or other persons clearly stipulated by law.
