Czech cabinet votes on dual citizenship

A DRAFT bill passed by the Czech cabinet February 24 aims to extend dual citizenship among ethnic Czechs living in Slovakia.

The bill was drafted by the Czech Interior Ministry following recommendation from the cabinet's human rights council.

Under the proposal, Czech citizenship will be available to children of marriages between Czechs and Slovaks, and to Czechs granted Slovak citizenship after the split of the Czechoslovak Federation in 1993.

The bill still has to be approved by the Senate and the House of Representatives.
