Legislation Impacting Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Radicalisation Efforts

Legislation Impacting Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Radicalisation Efforts Criminal Code of Slovakia.

There are several legal acts in the Slovak legislation, which are indirectly aimed against certain minorities. Article 34 of the Constitution guarantees minority rights, but also states that they “must not endanger the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Slovak Republic or cause discrimination against other groups of the population”. This provides ground for abuse of legislation, particularly in cases like claims to autonomy by the Hungarian minority, which the government sees as attempts to incorporate these regions into Hungary”.

Article 312 of the Criminal Code punishes those who “violate the territorial integrity” of Slovakia” Article 190 of the Criminal Code is punishes attempts to obtain “unwarranted cash benefits”, including those who seek benefits on national basis, which can be used against any national community or organisation.

In June 2014, the Constitution was amended to reinforce marriage as a union between a man and a woman, blocking any attempts of the LGBT community to achieve equal marriage.
