HZDS changes to draft Press Code, paper reports

The April 2 edition of the economic daily Hospodárske Noviny reports that the junior coalition party Movement for a Democratic Slovkia (ĽS-HZDS) has pushed through changes to the new draft Press Code which would mean that the right of reply might only be used if newspapers publish false information, and that the response of the affected person would not have to be printed in the same place and with the same prominence as the original story. The paragraph referring to the right of reply will certainly be re-formulated, SMER-SD deputy Dušan Jarjabek told the daily. However, he refused to specify what changes will be made. SITA
