Lawmakers Štefan Kuffa and his son, Filip Kuffa, have expanded the list of MPs facing criminal charges.

The duo from the Život (Life) political party, who made it to parliament on the slate of the far-right party People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) in 2020, are alleged to have been involved in a clash with a farmer from Kežmarok, eastern Slovakia.

Several other MPs, including former prime minister Robert Fico (Smer), Martin Borguľa (Sme Rodina) and Miroslav Suja (Republika) also face criminal charges in different cases.

In April 2022, he was found guilty of expressing sympathies for a movement suppressing basic rights and freedoms.
