Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš briefed lawmakers at a parliamentary session on April 10 about the predicament of ethnic Slovaks in the Hungarian village of Pilisszentkereszt (Mlynky), the TASR newswire wrote.

The dispute over the Slovak House community centre, from which the local government is attempting to evict the ethnic community to make office space for Mayor Jozsef Lendvai, is only the tip of the iceberg and not an isolated case, he said.

"The municipality has stopped publishing the local bilingual magazine, redid the cable television format to the detriment of minority broadcasting and reduced the ethnic pay stipend to Slovak teachers," Kubiš reported. TASR
