British Justice Minister Kenneth Clarke is visiting three EU countries this week and will be in the Slovak capital Bratislava on September 27 and 28, the TASR newswire reported.

He is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská and Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic, as well as the Constitutional Committee of the Slovak parliament, the British Embassy informed TASR.

During the two days, he is also expected to talk to British investors in Slovakia and representatives of the judicial and legal community. He expressed his pleasure of coming to the first working visit to Slovakia and of meeting his Slovak colleagues.

One of the issues will be the help offered for British businesspeople throughout Europe and strengthening the security of British citizens. Clarke was chosen as Justice Minister as he is seen as a pioneer of the fight against corruption in his country and anti-corruption measures will be part of his talks as well.
