Reader feedback: Breaking new ground

Re: No proper debate, Reader Feedback, October 31-November 6, 2005

The New Citizen's Alliance ANO party is not alone in their opposition to the proposed Vatican treaty. The submission report itself admits that this document "breaks new ground in the history of concordats". The unprecedented nature of this concordat has alarmed a broad range of international human rights groups.

One protest letter was sent to Prime Minister Dzurinda by 52 Members of the European Parliament from 14 countries and six political groups. Another expression of concern is signed by more than 130 leaders of international religious, women's rights and human rights organizations.
