Parliament passes law to prevent seizure of state property

By approving a draft amendment to the Execution Order, parliament has moved to prevent the possibility of state property being seized in settlement of outstanding debts. Of 116 MPs present in parliament on Wednesday, August 8, 115 supported the amendment, which was prepared by the Justice Ministry and debated using a fast-tracked legislative procedure.

By approving a draft amendment to the Execution Order, parliament has moved to prevent the possibility of state property being seized in settlement of outstanding debts. Of 116 MPs present in parliament on Wednesday, August 8, 115 supported the amendment, which was prepared by the Justice Ministry and debated using a fast-tracked legislative procedure.

The issue arose after the Constitutional Court recently found unconstitutional aspects of two laws – on managing state property and on state treasury – which had previously protected state property from seizure.

“Through this the state remained naked, there are no barriers which would restrict the endless [seizure] of state property,” Prime Minister Robert Fico told a press conference held on August 7, as quoted by SITA. He added that current situation allows executors “to dive after state property right after publishing the ruling in the collections of laws”.
