Slovak Supreme Court overrules outlawing of extremist group Slovenská Pospolitosť
2 Jul 2009 Flash News
The Slovak Supreme Court annulled the Interior Ministry's decision of November 12, 2008 to outlaw the extreme right-wing organisation Slovenská Pospolitosť (SP)(Slovak Togetherness), returning the matter to the ministry, Peter Preti from the Supreme Court told the TASR newswire on Wednesday, July 1.
The Supreme Court ruled that Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák's decision was illegal and that the legal conditions for disbanding Slovenská Pospolitosť had not been met. The Interior Ministry decided to outlaw this organization in response to “activities that incite hatred and national, racial, religious as well as political intolerance, achieving its goals via actions that contradict the Slovak Constitution and law”.
