When president Andrej Kiska was meeting Ružomberok's Mayor, Igor Čombor on March 16, the MP of Marian Kotleba’s party ĽSNS, Milan Mazurek, attacked a police officer. The man was allegedly a member of the unit protecting the state officials.
The punishment for attacking a public official is imprisonment from one to five years.
The police originally told the Sme daily only that they are investigating an attack against a public official. Later ĽSNS revealed that it was its MP, Mazurek.
He was defending his father Milan Mazurek Snr. who was trying to record the face of a police officer wearing civilian clothes with his cell phone. This was because the police officer was recording Mazurek's father with his camera, according to Mazurek Snr.Read also: Read also:

It was only then that we both learned that the man is a police officer, Mazurek Snr. claims in his criminal complaint. He filed it against an unknown offender for disorderly conduct and abusing the power of a public official.
Kiska’s office confirmed that it knows that the incident happened though they did not identify the people involved.
