Bratislava, January 11 (TASR) – Parliamentary Chair Andrej Danko (Slovak National Party/SNS) takes note of the report of the Special Commission of the Matej Bel University (UMB) Academic Senate, stressing that the report doesn’t mention anything about plagiarism.

“I appreciate that the commission declared that my rigorous procedure was in accordance with the legislation in force and that no offence was committed. In the whole text there is no mention about plagiarism, which my opponents hoped for,” Danko commented on the matter.

The Special Commission of the Matej Bel University Academic Senate created to investigate suspicions of plagiarism in rigorous theses at the UMB said on Friday that the pair of rigorous theses reported in the media “contain parts that are slightly modified in comparison with the source literature, however, most of them also show a high degree of accordance with the source literature, while the division into chapters and sub-chapters of the original sources has been preserved in some places.”
