Kaliňák: No influence regarding dissolution of Nomos Regionalizmus

Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák on January 23 denied any influence from the Slovak National Party (SNS) in the case of dissolving civic association Nomos Regionalizmus, founded by Slovak-Hungarian entrepreneur János Bósza from the southern Slovak town of Komárno.

According to Kaliňák, the ministry always acts in accordance with law. The fact that Bósza has previously attempted – several times – to register an association that was in conflict with Slovak regulations attests to his intention to be something other than what he has declared. The minister stated that the reason for dissolving the association was the activities that it was carrying out. It is alleged that the organization submitted public calls directed towards the disruption of territorial integrity, which cannot be the subject of the association's activities. After civic association Nomos Regionalizmus, which is devoted to creating a greater degree of independence for south Slovakia, was registered on the fourth attempt on January 11, the SNS proposed a dissolution motion to the Interior Ministry.
