The Slovak government is slated to discuss a draft of a new Property Disclosure Act as well as a so-called ‘small amendment’ to the Slovak Constitution at its session on January 13, Prime Minister Robert Fico told a press conference on January 4, the TASR newswire reported. Both initiatives have already been submitted for fast-track legislative proceedings in parliament.
The property disclosure bill is set to include the same provisions that were labelled as unconstitutional by Slovakia's Constitutional Court. It concerns, for instance, a provision on retroactivity as well as on the burden of proof, as the act proposed that an individual should be obliged to explain how he/she acquired his/her property.
