An EU Parliament Monitoring Delegation expressed concern over the equal rights situation in Slovakia regarding LGBTQI+ and Roma communities and called on the government to step up its efforts in recognising their rights.
The monitoring group for democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights, led by MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld visited Bratislava on the day the government of Prime Minister Eduard Heger lost a vote of no-confidence in the National Council on Friday. Among its appeals to the government, the group called on the executive to intensify its efforts to improve the legal recognition of same-sex couples and their children.
