Slovakia concerned about Hungarian rhetoric

The Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry on July 9 expressed concern over repeated remarks by certain Hungarian politicians that have cast doubt on the impartiality of the Slovak law enforcement authorities.

According to a ministry statement, Slovakia rejects political interference, and views certain statements made by Hungarian MPs as attempts to pressure and encroach on the work of independent police and judicial bodies.

The ministry's statement comes in response to reports in the Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap on July 7 that Hungarian MPs Csaba Tabajdi and Kinga Gal intend to take the charges against ethnic-Hungarian student Hedviga Malinová to the human rights court in Brussels.
