In an article entitled "Law firm turf was may result in suits," By Chris Togneri (Vol. 6 No. 7, Feb. 21-27), lawyer Marko Polakovič of the Bratislava-based law firm Csekes-Világi was quoted as saying that "international firms are providing illegal, unauthorised services according to the criminal code." The quote should have read "international law firms not registered with either the Slovak Chamber of Advocates or the Slovak Chamber of Commercial lawyers are providing..." The Slovak Spectator regrets the omission.

In the same issue, the caption on a front-page picture mistakenly identified EC Chairman Romano Prodi as shaking hands with Slovak Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan. The real identity of the figure in the picture is Jaime Gama, the Portuguese Minister of State and Foreign Affairs. The Slovak Spectator thanks those readers who wrote in to point out the error.
