Government changes penal code on threats to senior officials

By: J.S., STA

The government adopted a bill changing the penal code to introduce prosecution of suspects who have threatened the country’s senior officials or their relatives ex officio, without the injured party initiating proceedings.

The bill comes after such a solution was proposed in February as the parliamentary justice and home affairs committees discussed mounting hostility in society. The session was called by all three coalition parties, both minority MPs and the opposition National Party (SNS).
