Treaty with Vatican against equality, court says

The Supreme Court ruled that a prepared bilateral treaty between Slovakia and the Vatican in the area of education was a one-sided measure that would make Slovakia subject to the decisions of the Holy See.

The treaty is being prepared by the Education Ministry, and is expected to introduce state financing for Catholic schools in Slovakia and to give Catholic schools the right not to teach subjects that do not correspond with Catholic doctrine, such as in the areas of ethics and morality.

Other state institutions presented more than 80 objections to the draft treaty.

The Supreme Court also said that the draft did not respect the equality of citizens. It stated that if the treaty was approved, it would give different status to Catholics and people of other or no faith.
