On behalf of the opposition, Slovak Hungarian Coalition (SMK) MP Agnes Biró submitted revisions to the Press Code that is currently in its second reading in parliament, the SITA newswire wrote.

The revisions would bring the bill’s provisions on anonymous sources and the right to correction and reply into line with the recommendations of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

KDH MP Daniel Lipšic used the occasion to reiterate that his party cannot support the Press Code in its current form. He submitted a revision that would exempt public officials, state bodies and suspected criminals from the right to reply. Otherwise, 95 percent of replies will come from those groups, he said.

Lipšic accused Culture Minister Marek Maďarič of stifling debate on the bill. SITA
