Europe dislikes our new Press Act

On the same day, the economic daily Hospodárske noviny reports that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) warned on January 22 that Slovakia's draft press bill will significantly limit freedom of press. Simultaneously, OSCE asked the Slovak Parliament to turn down the controversial bill. OSCE representative for freedom of media Miklós Haraszti wrote Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš that the bill contains sections that might significantly reduce independence of editorial desks, which would contradict Slovakia's international obligations to protect the freedom of media.
