Foundation bill passes for second time

On June 20, the Slovak parliament reapproved a law on foundations first passed in May but later vetoed by President Michal Kováč, Slovak media reported. In doing so, it ignored objections from Kováč, domestic non-profit organizations, and international critics. Before the vote, Kováč appeared in the parliament to warn that the law is not in harmony with Slovakia's obligations as an associated country of the European Union. The law takes effect on September 1.
