MP loses immunity

Parliament yesterday accepted a request from the Zvolen district prosecutor to remove the parliamentary immunity from Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) MP Viliam Soboňa, who is under investigation for fraud.

HZDS caucus leader Tibor Cabaj had asked for parliament to wait until the investigation into another case in which Soboňa was the plaintiff had been concluded.

The cancellation of Soboňa's immunity was supported by coalition parties, but HZDS members, communists, and independents voted against, and most members of opposition Smer abstained.
