Slovakia’s SMK party to file criminal complaint over graffiti in Nové Zámky

Slovakia’s Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) intends to file a criminal complaint regarding defamation of a nation, SMK press secretary Helena Fialová told the TASR newswire on May 9 because of anti-Hungarian graffiti that appeared in Nové Zámky in Nitra Region over the weekend. "SMK views this act as deliberate provocation. The timing and place aren't random, as a situation in the upcoming census in Nové Zámky might emerge in which the number of ethnic-Hungarians could drop under the 20-percent threshold," Fialová stated.

SMK condemned the incident and said it considers it an intolerant act against peaceful co-existence. The party called on members of the ethnic-Hungarian community in Nové Zámky and other Slovak regions to not give up their native language, religion or nationality despite what it called provocations.
