On January 26, the Slovak government approved a proposed amendment to the law on civil service prohibiting employees of the security forces such as police officers, intelligence service (SIS) officers, correctional and judicial guards and railway police from holding dual citizenship, the SITA newswire reported.

The authors of the draft are coalition MPs from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) MPs, Radoslav Procházka, Pavol Abrhan and Pavol Hrušovský, who say they drafted the amendment because when an individual obtains citizenship in another country they must pledge allegiance to that country: to protect it, serve it and obey its laws and constitution.
