Security software producer Eset is suing Smer MP Ľuboš Blaha for statuses and videos he has been publishing, the Sme daily reported.

“Eset can confirm that it submitted a lawsuit against MP Ľuboš Blaha, which relates to his untrue and unfounded statements about Eset during the past few months,” the company wrote in a statement provided to Sme. “It’s a standard legal procedure we chose to protect Eset’s reputation.”
