INVESTIGATION DROPPED IN HEDVIG MALINA CASE

 

The Győr-Moson-Sopron County prosecutor’s office has dropped an investigation and criminal proceedings in a case initiated by Slovak authorities against Hedvig Malina Zsák for alleged perjury and other crimes, the chief prosecutor of Győr-Moson-Sopron County said. Based on available data and physical evidence it is not possible to establish that Malina Zsák was not attacked and to draw the conclusion that she made a false statement, Péter Takács said.

Malina suffered a beating by two skinheads in the town of Nitra (Nyitra) in Slovakia in August 2006, allegedly due to her ethnicity. Later on, she was charged with providing false testimony.
