Parliament will not require Justice Minister Štefan Harabin to apologise to
lawmakers and the public for his vulgar and allegedly anti-Semitic statements following last week's session vote on a no-confidence motion against him, the SITA wrote.

SDKÚ MP Stanislav Janis introduced the proposal. Not a single governing coalition MP raised his hand to support it. Deputy Speaker of Parliament Milan Hort (SDKÚ) expressed disappointment.

“Our stance has to be articulated here,” he said. “If it is not, a permanent stain will remain on parliament for permitting anti-Semitic statements."

Harabin uttered the comments during a vocal confrontation with KDH MP Daniel Lipšic, who brought the no-confidence motion against him.

"You behaviour reminds me of some Nazis with Jewish ancestry who murdered innocent children, women and old men in death camps just to demonstrate their loyalty to fascism," he shouted at Lipšic.

He also compared Lipšic to Josef Goebbels, and said they only job Lipšic would get at the Justice Ministry was as a prisoner who cleans floors. SITA
