New anti-terrorism laws proposed in Slovakia

Uncontrolled migration is an unprecedented risk for Slovakia and the entire EU, according to Prime Minister Robert Fico, and his government is now responding with a set of what it calls anti-terrorism measures.

Fico introduced the planned measures on November 25, arguing that they are needed because the security of Slovakia’s citizens must be a top priority “before any other rights”. In his previous speeches following the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, Fico emphasised that the rights of migrants are inferior to the security issues.

More than 15 laws, including some provisions in the constitution, will have to be amended in order for the new measures to be introduced.
