Lipšic declares war on illegal property

Individuals unable to prove the origin of their property might have it confiscated under a proposed law. Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic wants citizens to inform the police in case they suspect their neighbours obtained any property illegally.

Leader of the opposition Smer party Robert Fico said that the Justice Ministry just copied his idea.

Lipšic hopes that even the opposition will support his proposal.
