THE GENERAL Prosecutor’s Office has received altogether 160 motions calling to disband the far-right People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) of Marian Kotleba.

“The General Prosecutor’s Office is currently looking into the submissions,” said its spokesperson Andrea Predajňová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The proposals have been filed by the organisers of the march against extremism, which took place on March 7 in Bratislava.

The activists have also delivered a letter to General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár, asking him to turn to the Supreme Court with the demand to disband ĽSNS. They say it is identical to the party which was already dissolved in the past for being at odds with the constitution.

They referred to the motion submitted by former general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka in October 2015, proposing to disband Slovak Togetherness – National Party. The Supreme Court accepted the proposal in March 2006, TASR wrote.

The party, however, continued in its activities as a civic association under the name Slovak Togetherness. It was disbanded by the Interior Ministry in November 2008, but the Supreme Court cancelled this decision in July 2009.

The right-wing extremists took control over the Friends of Wine Party before the 2010 parliamentary elections, and later changed its name to ĽSNS.
