Slovakia gets terrorism legislation

CABINET'S legislative council discussed a revision of the country's Penal Code which introduces terrorism as a new crime to the legislation. The revision defines the legal concept of a terrorist group, and broadens the state's powers to seize property should it serve to finance terrorist activities.

Anyone found guilty of merely forming a terrorist group, even if it has not committed any crimes, will be liable to 12 to 15 years in jail, or to an exceptional penalty of 15 to 25 years, or life. Should a terrorist act be carried out in a particularly brutal way, the Justice Ministry proposes the exceptional penalty be made the only possible one.
