Slovak MEP Milan Uhrik, who ran for the far right People's Party Our Slovakia, could face disciplinary action due to a Facebook status in which he ridiculed Belgian transgender MEP Petra De Sutter. Uhrik on Thursday called De Sutter "a 56-year-old Belgian man, a transvestite". "Now imagine that this weirdo makes decisions on the future of Slovakia, European families, European civilisation and culture," he wrote. According to information TASR press agency has at its disposal, De Sutter has been informed about the status. She's a member of European Greens and has been chairing the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) since joining the European Parliament. "I'm not afraid of disciplinary action, I wrote only the truth - that [De Sutter] is a 56-year-old Belgian man," Uhrik stated for TASR.
