EU calls for tougher action against bribery

SLOVAKIA's main EU negotiator Ján Figeľ and anti-corruption watchers agreed that Slovak authorities need to speed up their fight against corruption, one of major problems the country has to deal with, according to EU representatives.

Pavel Nechala from Transparency International Slovakia told the daily Pravda that "although steps are being planned, it could all go a bit faster. The pace is slow."

Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic said, however, that the cabinet had already prepared many anti-corruption measures, including a law establishing a special prosecutor and court to deal with the most serious bribery cases. His measures are waiting to be passed by parliament.
