This is the result of an announcement on March 25 that Mlynky's original Slovak House, which was home to local ethnic-Slovak organisations, will be taken over by the local Hungarian authorities, the TASR newswire wrote.

The case has raised eyebrows not only among the affected minority, but also among the most senior officials in Slovakia and in Hungary, which has also agreed to release Sk10 million for a new building in Mlynky. Around 55 percent of Mlynky's 2,500 residents identified themselves as havig Slovak nationality in the 2001 census. TASR
