Minister: government following ‘unusual’ events in Slovakia’s domestic politics
The Hungarian government is following closely the “unusual” events in Slovakia’s domestic politics, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told MTI on Saturday. Szijjártó said that, according to press reports, efforts are being made to put the opposition leader behind bars, which “warrants closer attention than usual”.
Slovakia’s national criminal agency NAKA has launched a procedure against Robert Fico, the former prime minister and current leader of the opposition Social Democrats (Smer-SD), and his former interior minister Robert Kalinak on suspicion of setting up and supporting a criminal group and abuse of office.
Fico said at a press conference on Saturday that the charges were baseless and politically motivated.
