THE CABINET will make a one-off financial contribution to people and their widowed spouses who were placed in forced labour military camps between the years 1948 and 1954, the news wire SITA wrote.
Members of the so-called auxiliary technical brigades are the last group of victims of communism to not be fully compensated.
Approved on August 31, the compensation for former camp inmates will be Sk1,500 (€37.27) for each month they spent in forced labour military camps during their military service.
