Prisoners do their bit for EU entry

THREE out of four Slovak prisoners participated in Slovakia's referendum on EU entry, far exceeding the national voter turnout and significantly contributing to the success of the national vote.

While as a whole just over 52 percent of voters turned out in the crucial referendum on EU entry, as many as 76.5 percent of prisoners took part in the ballot, statistics have shown.

According to Oto Lobodáš, head of the Slovak prison guards, nearly 3,000 convicts were serving penalties when the referendum took place on May 16 and 17.
