The National Criminal Agency (NAKA) launched a criminal prosecution against the Kotleba-ĽSNS MP Milan Mazurek, it announced on March 16. He is being prosecuted for his statements on the Žilina-based radio Frontinus, concerning Roma people, the daily Sme wrote.

First, the Žilina police investigated his statements; later, NAKA took over and in January, it launched a criminal prosecution for defamation of race and nation ,the private TA3 TV channel informed, as cited by Sme. Mazurek allegedly publicly spoke in a way about the Roma that could potentially incite hatred.

In the interview, Mazurek also said that for him, the first and only true Slovak president was Jozef Tiso, the World-War-II-era president later executed for collaboration with Nazis.

The Council for Broadcasting and Re-transmission is also dealing with the radio, as it received a complaint against the host who did not react to Mazurek’s statements. The proceedings should be concluded in April.

Mazurek has already been investigated by police for Holocaust statements, which he likened to a fairy tale.
