SNS to introduce Law on Protection of the Republic; create militias

The attendance of ethnic-Hungarian SMK MPs at a session of the 'Forum of MPs of the Carpathian Basin' (FPKK) in Budapest last week has convinced the Slovak National Party (SNS) of the need to adopt new measures, SNS vice-chair Anna Belousovová said at a press conference on September 18.

The attendance of ethnic-Hungarian SMK MPs at a session of the 'Forum of MPs of the Carpathian Basin' (FPKK) in Budapest last week has convinced the Slovak National Party (SNS) of the need to adopt new measures, SNS vice-chair Anna Belousovová said at a press conference on September 18.

The SNS intends to draw up a law on the protection of the republic and an act concerning the creation of territorial militias, Belousovová announced.

According to SNS chairman Ján Slota, the FPKK - presided over by Hungarian Parliamentary Chair Katalin Szili - is a direct tool of Budapest for interfering in the internal affairs of neighbouring states. Slota accused Szili of giving SMK MPs instructions aimed at violating Slovakia's territorial integrity.

Slota added that members of the Hungarian Jobbik and FIDESZ parties have met with representatives of a radical Basque party. He expects the two parties to enjoy success in the general election due to take place in Hungary in 2010, leading to increased support for the Hungarian Guard, a radical militia.

The party plans to demand that SMK MPs explain their attendance at the FPKK session. It will also request a change in how Slovakia is divided into region aimed at reducing the number of regions from eight to three, with special status for Bratislava. TASR
