More than 1,200 people have signed an online petition by the Fair Play Alliance and Via Iuris entitled "For Truth and Justice," which demands that Justice Minister Štefan Harabin step down, the SITA newswire wrote.

The petition relates the same opinion of Judge Jana Dubovcová, who called for the justice minister to resign in the September 11 issue of the Sme daily due to his remarks on Jews and his alleged contacts with persons linked to organised crime.

The petition is posted on the Fair Play Alliance’s website, www.fair-play.sk. Its text along with each signature will be forwarded automatically to Harabin’s e-mail address and the prime minister’s office.

The Fair Play Alliance and Via Iuris said the government has not responded to the petition. SITA
