Euro Parliament criticises anti-Hungarian reform

Members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg yesterday approved a resolution on Slovakia praising the country for moving ahead with privatisation and meeting the EU’s political criteria, but criticising the country’s record on minorities. Above all, the parliament took a negative view of a recently approved division of the country into eight self-governing regions against the wishes of the ethnic Hungarians. It also criticised the situation of the Slovak Roma, and singled out Slovakia for involvement in the trade in women, prostitutes and child pornography.
