Kubiš: Coalition should alter Press Code

Slovakia should incorporate the comments from international organisations into its draft press law, Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš repeated on March 13.

Slovakia should incorporate the comments from international organisations into its draft press law, Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš repeated on March 13.

Kubiš called the comments from the OSCE, which he once headed, rational and said that they, along with the comments from the Council of Europe, should be considered, the SITA newswire wrote. He noted that most of the concern centres on the draft's provisions on the right of response.

The OSCE has warned that in its present form, the new press law would limit freedom of the press. It wants the Ministry of Culture’s new powers to decide on news content to be removed from the bill. The organisation also recommends combining two of the reforms - the right of response and the right to a correction - into one. SITA
