Forced labour finally compensated

THE CABINET will make a one-off financial contribution to people and their widowed spouses who were placed in forced labour military camps between 1948 and 1954, according to SITA.

Members of the so-called "auxiliary technical brigades" are the last officially recognised victims of communism to receive compensation.

Approved in August, the compensation for camp inmates is Sk1,500 (€37.27) for every month spent in forced labour during their military service.
