Slovak nationalists accuse premier of war crimes

Jun 13, 2000 -- (RFE/RL) Slovak National Party (SNS) Chairwoman Anna Malikova told journalists on 9 June that the SNS intends to seek criminal proceedings against Prime Minister Dzurinda for having opened Slovakia's air space to NATO aircraft during the 1999 raids on Yugoslavia, CTK reported.

Malikova said the complaint will be based on an Amnesty International report saying that NATO intentionally bombed civilian targets.

"Amnesty International should have used stronger words. If you violate human rights by depriving someone of his life, in Slovak we call this murder," she said.
