The extra-parliamentary ethnic Hungarian party informed the TASR newswire on July 29 and also announced that it will approach Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák to make sure that the incident is properly investigated.  

“We demand that the case is investigated soon and the attackers are punished,” Chairman József Berényi said, adding that the aggressors had a car with a Trnava licence plate. “ It's a shocking act; we’re on the side of the Dunajská Streda fans.”

Two of them had to be treated medically, and a criminal complaint has also already been filed, Berényi told TASR. He added that SMK is ready to provide legal assistance to the injured fans, if necessary.
