The Most-Híd party, a member of the governing coalition, filed a criminal complaint against the Slovak National Party (SNS), one of the opposition parties, for inciting ethnic hatred, the SITA newswire reported.

“The reason for the suit are anti-Hungarian billboards that have been placed by the SNS across the whole country and also insulting and defamatory statements of the party’s MPs in media and in parliament,” Most-Híd spokesperson Nora Czuczorová told SITA.

“We are doing this only now as we had still hoped that someone – NGOs, prosecution authorities – will notice, acknowledge and draw attention to these dangerous attacks. But this did not happen and we are convinced that such demonstrations are dangerous and there is no room for them in the 21st century,” stated party chairman Béla Bugár.

He added that the SNS billboards seek to persuade citizens of Slovak nationality that to be a Slovak means to hate another nation. The party also filed a complaint with the Council for Advertisement.
