“I can confirm the prime minister is hospitalised for cardiovascular examination in the national institute,” NÚSCH spokeswoman Dobroslava Krajačičová said, as quoted by Denník N.

NÚSCH declined to comment on the reasons for Fico’s hospitalisation, but as the The Slovak Spectator went to print Fico was set to stay overnight.

Fico reportedly had problems already on April 12 and cancelled a planned testimony in court. He also changed his daily schedule on April 13, though he attended the government session at which the new programme statement was adopted, Denník N wrote.
