Independent MP Pavol Minárik submitted an amendment to the Act on Misdemeanors on November 3 that would strip MPs of immunity for refusing to take a breathalyser test when stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence.
MPs lost their immunity from punishment for driving under the influence in 2006, but, as Minárik noted, they are still immune to chrges for refusing a breathalyser. TASR
