Daniel Milo, expert in extremism at the Interior Ministry, has given his notice and is leaving his post at the Interior Ministry, yet he has not disclosed the reasons for his departure.

“I can confirm this, but I do not want to comment on the matter for now,” said Milo as cited by the Sme daily. “I decided not to medialise these things until I am formally at the ministry.”

Milo is leaving the department of criminality prevention at the Office of the Interior Ministry. He should be at the ministry formally until the end of July.

Milo is one of the most quoted experts in extremism. Also Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská used his recommendations when elaborating her anti-extremist package.

Extremism has become one of the most serious topics after a mass protest rally against Islamisation that took place in Bratislava in June 2015. Nine months later Marian Kotleba’s far-right extremist People’s Party-Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) made it to the parliament after the March parliamentary elections. The third Robert Fico cabinet included the fight against extremism also into its priorities for its four-year term.
