JUSTICE Minister Daniel Lipšic is preparing tougher penalties for drunk drivers who kill people.
The Slovak daily SME wrote that the prepared change to the country's Penal Code would introduce a minimum sentence of three years and a maximum of 10 in such cases. The current jail terms stretch from six months to five years.
