Preventing the creation of "a compact Muslim community" because "we don't want someone to abuse our women in public spaces", are statements which Prime Minister Robert Fico could be prosecuted for, according to lawyers approached by The Slovak Spectator.
"Theoretically, the prosecution of Prime Minister Fico could be possible," lawyer Jozef Dobrovič told The Slovak Spectator, adding that the statement could be seen as incitation to restricting ethnic groups' rights and freedoms.
In his statement Fico responded to events in Cologne, Germany, where dozens of women were sexually harassed and/or robbed during the city's New Year celebrations. About 90 women reported to police that they were sexually harassed by young, mainly drunk men, who threatened them and robbed them. Two women reported that they had been raped, the Sme daily wrote.
