Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda yesterday spoke for two hours in front of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, telling MEPs that Slovakia saw no sense in discussing laws passed in 1945 depriving Germans and Hungarians of property and citizenship in Czechoslovakia. Dzurinda said the laws, known as the Beneš Decrees, represented “a road back to the past”, and that debating them now could be “dangerous”.
