Euro Parliament criticises anti-Hungarian reform

Members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg September 5 approved a resolution on Slovakia praising the country for moving ahead with privatisation and meeting the European Union's political criteria, but criticising its record on minorities.

It also criticised the situation of the Slovak Roma, and singled out Slovakia for involvement in the trade in women, prostitutes and child pornography.
