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.

Above all, the EP 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.
