Plaintiff: World Association of Former Political Prisoners (hereinafter referred to as WAFPP)
Defendant: Slovak Republic - Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic,
Lawsuit/Appeal to violation of the principle of equal treatment in the provision of subsidies to exhaustively defined Civic Associations in the authority and the budget chapter of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic
I. Violation of the principle of equal treatment - discrimination against Civic Associations representing former political prisonersThe Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic (hereinafter referred to as the Ministry of the Interior) provides subsidies for the activities of Civic Associations whose main mission is to organize reverential commemorations of crimes of fascism and communism as well as research, archiving and publishing activities of anti-communist resistance, totalitarian and crimes of communism. Prior to the change in the political system, the state subsidy was provided only to the Civic Association Slovak Union of Anti-Fascist Fighters (hereinafter referred to as the SUAFF), as Civic Associations representing former political prisoners were not allowed. After the fall of the communist regime, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic began to provide a subsidy to the newly established KPVS – Konfederácia politických väzňov Slovenska - Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia (CPPS), which was registered on 2 September 1991 under No. VVS / 1-909 / 90-171.
The history of the Civic Association CPPS and the establishment of two new associations representing former political prisoners in 1999 and 2001 are given in Supplement/Annex No. 1
As we confirm in Annex No. 4, publicly available data from the website of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, on the amount of subsidies provided confirm that from 2002 to 2012 a higher subsidy was provided to Political Prisoners' Associations than the Slovak Union of Anti-Fascist Fighters. After the elections in 2012 and the beginning of the coalition led by the political party Smer-SD, the principle of the hitherto established parity of fair distribution of subsidies has been fundamentally changed and since 2013 to the detriment of Associations of Political Prisoners. The SZPB – (Slovenský zväz protifašistických bojovníkov is Slovak Union of Anti Fascist Fighters - SUAFF) was provided a subsidy more than twice the amount of the subsidy provided to the KPVS – (Konfederácia politických väzňov Slovenska – Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia - CPPS ), PV ZPKO – (Politickí väzni, Zväz protikomunistického odboja - Political Prisoners Union of Anti-Communist Resistance – PP UACR) Associations and, since 2006, also to the WAFPP. This procedure of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic has occurred since 2013 and the principle of equal treatment in providing subsidies to exhaustively defined Civic Associations within the authority and the budget chapter of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic was violated.
1, of Act no. 365/2004 Coll. Anti-discrimination law. Discrimination against Associations representing former political prisoners and victims of Stalinism and Communism is confirmed by the fact that, despite the fact that the CFSP-World Association of Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners – (in Slovak SZBPV) , is criticized for spreading pro-Russian propaganda and opposing Slovakia's Western and European orientation, as confirmed by several articles published in the Slovak media, Prime Minister Robert Fico for the magazine of the SZPB Bojovník – Fighter, magazine of World Union Anti-Fascist Fighters Association (WUAFFA) no. 2, year 2011, stated, we quote: "We must make the SZPVB – WUAFFA, an official part of state policy.” We repeatedly drew the attention of the then Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior to discrimination against Associations representing political prisoners, and as we confirm in Annex no. 5 Complaint of 19 July 2017 also the Council of Europe and the President of the European Parliament.
II. Violation of the principle of equal treatment - Discrimination against the World Association of Former Political Prisoners on the grounds of political opinion.
Violation of the principle of equal treatment in the provision of subsidies to exhaustively defined Civic Associations in the material scope of the budget chapter of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic has been demonstrably long-term since 2006 and continues to discriminate CFSP 1 of Act no. 365/2004 Coll. Anti-discrimination law, which we confirm by these:
1.The Association is the successor organization of K 231 and the Association of Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners, founded in the spring of 1968 at the time of Alexander Dubček's efforts to reform the communist regime. After the occupation on August 21, 1968, the Ministry of the Interior identified these associations as a tool of the Western Secret Services to break communism and banned their activities. At the time of normalization, the Associations were active in Canada and Switzerland. They published the magazine Svědomí a Mukl.-(Svědomí means Conscience and Mukl means Man Prepared for Liquidation). In principle, the CFSP defends the legacy of its predecessors and the ideas of democratic values and freedom for which the greatest sacrifices were made by political prisoners. It is demonstrably the only Association in which no registered ŠtB – Štátna bezpečnosť – State Security Police, employee worked in the management. Since the founding of the KPVS –Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia,there have been concerns among politicians connected with the former regime and the State Security Council that an Association with a membership base of more than 10,000 members will not become a political party working to investigate the crimes of communism. For this reason, KPVS was infiltrated by ŠtB (State Security Police) collaborators, about which we can submit to the court evidence as obtained from the archives of the Ministry of Interior of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic in Prague, including documentary evidence and testimonies of political prisoners proving the cooperation of several KPVS officials with ZVJS – Zbor väzenskej a Justičnej stráže – Union of Judicial and Prison Guard,internal protection, which is also confirmed by the registration volumes kept by the Institute of the Memory of the Nation – ÚPN - Ústav pamäti národa. For this reason, the activities of the CFSP, whose political convictions and thinking are different from those of the managing officials of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, have been eliminated for a long time by providing the lowest subsidy, which is insufficient for the Association to run due to the scope of agenda management and accounting. Since after the adoption of the Act on the provision of subsidies within the competence of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic no. 526/2010 Coll. the Association is entitled to provide a subsidy without a call announced by the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, its activities are eliminated.
2. The Association has been long discriminated against compared to the KPVS and PV ZPKO Associations also in that the amount of the subsidy provided by the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic prevents it from publishing its own magazine. PV ZPKO publishes the monthly magazine "Svedectvo" – “Testimony”, and KPVS publishes the bimonthly magazine "Naše svedectvo" – “Our Testimony”. As confirmed by the report from the negotiations on the low amount of the subsidy for the CFSP,member of the National Council of the Slovak Republic Kristián Čekovský with the director of the Public Administration Section of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic (hereinafter SVS MV SR) Adrián Jenčo, dated 18 March 2021 in Annex no. 7, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic has a problem with the fact that the publication of the magazine and the activities of the CFSP would be politicized. The opinion of the SVS MV SR (Public Administration Section of Ministry of Interior of Slovak republic) with regard to the fact that it is an Association of political prisoners is irrational and clearly in conflict with the fundamental right to freedom of expression, as well as in conflict with the provisions of § 2 letter. g) of the Act on the provision of subsidies within the competence of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic no. 526/2010 Coll., Which stipulates the provision of subsidies for research, archiving and publishing activities of the anti-communist resistance, the fight against totalitarianism and the crimes of communism. The argument of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic that on the basis of negative media coverage it will not provide a subsidy to SZPV for the publication of Bojovník – Fighter magazine and PV ZPKO Svedectvo - Testimony,magazine is unfounded, because negative media coverage did not apply to CFSP activities. The fact that the Ministry of the Interior increased the subsidy provided to KPVS in 2021 confirms the violation of the principle of equal treatment, also due to the fact that KPVS is a member of the Slovak Government Minister, registration number 23214, code name "Caretaker"- Housekeeper. By supplementing the application for a subsidy for 2021 dated 11 April 2021, sent to the director of SVS MV SR, we requested an increase in the subsidy mainly due to the publication of the magazine "Svedomie" – “Consciense”, which we confirm in Annex no. 8.
3. Violation of the principle of equal treatment in the provision of subsidies is confirmed by the procedure of the current Minister of the Interior Roman Mikulec, who decided on the proposal of the SVA MV SR in 2021 to provide SZPB with a subsidy of 350,000 euros, KPVS of 72,000 euros, PV ZPKO of 65,000 euros and CFSP in the amount of 8,000 euros, which is confirmed by the report from the meeting of Kristián Čekovský, Member of the National Council of the Slovak Republic with the Director of the SVA MV SR of 18 March 2021. for KPVS 80,000 euros, for PV ZPKO 40,000 euros and for CFSPV 4,000 euros. We will prove the reduction of the subsidy for the CFSP by half without giving a reason, at the initiative of the Minister of the Interior, with several documentary evidence of CFSP communication with the Minister, function of March 26, 2020, in which we asked him to accept the issue of unfair provision of subsidies. However, the Minister of the Interior did not accept the association's request for admission when we wanted to inform him confidentially about several suspicions of economic and other criminal activity. Part of the letter concerning the hospital in Poprad-Kvetnice was forwarded by NAKA, which rejected him under the rug without hearing the proposed witness, and part concerning former President of PZ Milan Lučanský and former director of NAKA Branislav Zurian forwarded to the Office of Inspection Service (hereinafter referred to as ÚIS - Inspection Service Office - ISO). Problems arose for the Association in this way, as the statute filed a complaint against the ÚIS – ISO resolution on 26 February 2021 due to the false allegations of Branislav Zurian before the investigator. A few days after the complaint was lodged, former ÚIS (ISO) Director Adrián Szabó issued a mandate to carry out a financial audit of the subsidy provided by the CFSP in 2020. The effectiveness of the on-the-spot financial control is confirmed by the fact that he has never inspected ÚIS - ISO since 2007. The above facts, including the resolutions of the ÚIS – ISO Band the prosecutor's office with regard to the scope of documentary evidence, can be submitted to the court as part of the evidence. After two months, the financial audit did not identify any serious violations that would be a reason for the return of funds to the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, which we can prove with a report from the financial audit. We informed the Minister of the Interior about the above facts in a request for information on who initiated the former director of ÚIS –ISO to issue a power of attorney to perform a financial control to which the Minister did not respond. We informed the Minister of Interior about the result of the financial control by e-mail on 14 June 2021, which is confirmed by Annex no. 9.
As we confirm with the application for the provision of a subsidy dated 4 January 2021, which is Annex no. 10, violation of the principle of equal treatment confirms the fact that the publication of the magazine "Svedomie"- “Conscience” and activities listed in the project of the Association for 2021 aimed at promoting democracy and the rule of law, including support of the current government in the proclaimed fight against political mafia and corruption undesirable, which is paradoxically in sharp conflict with the government's program statement.
The activities of the project for which we applied to the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic in the application for a subsidy for 2021 to provide a subsidy in the amount of 50,000 euros and which we wanted to support the current coalition in accordance with its program statement are listed in Annex no. 11.
All our proposals were undesirable for the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic, as evidenced by the current efforts of the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic to eliminate the Association by reducing the subsidy with the ultimate goal of its economic liquidation and which also confirms that.
The Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic is aware that the activities of the above-mentioned Civic Associations require financial costs, inter alia, especially for wages due to the demanding keeping of accounting, the control of which is performed by the ÚIS – Úrad Inšpekčnej služby - Inspection Service Office (ISO) . The majority of the provided subsidy is intended for wages, which is confirmed by PV ZPKO's (Political Prisoners - Union of Anti Comunist Fighters) Unresponse to our request for information in accordance with the Act on Free Access to Information of 2 June 2021, which we attach in Annex no. 12. KPVS (CPPS) refused to provide the CFSP request and information on the amount of wage costs, which we confirm in Annex no. 13. Peter Sandtner, 35 years old, chairman of KPVS, also refused to provide a request for information on wage costs to KPVS member Peter Klyučkovič, although he was obliged to do so according to the Articles of Association Confederation of Slovak Political Prisoners CPPS (Abreviation in Slovak is KPVS) .He also did not accept his objections to the illegitimate and illegal way change of Article on November 2020 at the time of Covid – Caranteen,, when for this reason they could not be approved by a 2/3 majority of the General Assembly, so that a member of the Bureau may also be a KPVS (CPPS) member who was not a political prisoner or his close relatives. Article 8, par.1) Rules of CPPS. Reduced number of members of the presidency from 7 to 3. We also consider the fact that the Ministry of Interior SR registered the statutes of KPVS (CPPS) without verifying the legitimacy of their approval as a violation of the principle of equal treatment, which confirms the rejection of Petr Klyučkovič's initiative by the director of SVS MV SR (Section of Public Administrations of Ministry of Interior Slovak Republic) ) in Annex no. 14. The complaint for the conduct of the JRC procedure of the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic was rejected by the former director of ÚIS (ISO) Adrián Szabó, which is confirmed by Annex no. 15. The Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic is demonstrably passive in violation of the statutes by the KPVS Civic Association. He accepts the fact that the vice-chairman is entrusted with the management of the KPVS, which calls into question the function of the chairman, which is performed by a member of the KPVS who was not a political prisoner in violation of the original KPVS statutes.(Article 8,paragraph 1.) In contrast to the tolerant approach to KPVS, SVS MV SR criticizes the PV ZPKO Association for the presentation of their opinions in their magazine Svedectvo (Testimony) and considers the activities of the CFSP, including the publication of the magazine "Svedomie"(“Consciense”) , to be a problem.
The procedure of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic is obviously in conflict with the principle of equal treatment in relation to Civic Associations representing political prisoners. This practice of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic has been continuously demonstrably since 1999, when the KPVS was divided for political reasons. The principle of providing subsidies was politicized according to the government's power. The main criterion for the amount of the subsidy provided was not and is not the project or the number of members of the Association but the political connection to the management of the Civic Association, which confirms the fact that the chairman of the KPVS – Confederation Political Prisoners of Slovakia - CPPS was the former Interior Minister Ladislav Pittner. The Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic continues these practices under the leadership of the current Minister of the Interior Roman Mikulec, who signed a decision to increase the subsidy for KPVS to 80,000 euros, while PV ZPKO – Political Prisoners Union of Anticommunist Resistance Fighters PP UARF,and CFSP – WAFCPP – our Civic Association - World Association Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners,reduced the subsidy by half without giving a reason. The violation of the principle of equal treatment is unequivocally and without any doubt confirmed by the fact that the head of KPVS is entrusted to the head of the District Office in Bratislava, belonging to the Ministry of Interior, Branislav Borovský, who according to the Commercial Register. We drew the attention of the Minister of the Interior to the sharp Conflict of interests by sending a Request for the provision of information in accordance with the statutes of the KPVS (CPPS) and the Act on Free Access to Information Information Act,no. 211/2000 Coll. of 26 May 2021, which was sent to the filing office of the District Office in Bratislava, which we confirm in Annex no. 16. According to the Information Act, no information was provided within 8 days as of the date of the action.
III. Infringements of the principle of equal treatment
Since the Minister of the Interior of the Slovak Republic Roman Mikulec did not respond to the pre-litigation call - an attempt at an out-of-court settlement of 21 May 2021, which we attach in Annex no. 17 and did not answer the question stated in the answer of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic to the request for the provision of information Annex no. 18 - stating the reason for halving the subsidy for CFSP for 2021, therefore there is no presumption of compliance with the principle of equal treatment in accordance with the Anti-Discrimination Act by the Ministry of Interior, nor the willingness of the current Minister of the Interior to eliminate violations of equal treatment in accordance with , we propose that the court, after examining the above evidence, rule as follows
J U D G M E N T
ACTION FOR VIOLATION OF THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUAL TREATMENT In 2013-2021, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic violated the principle of equal treatment in providing subsidies by providing the Slovak Union of Anti-Fascist Fighters a disproportionately higher subsidy than Civic Associations representing political prisoners, the Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia, the Political Prisoners Association and the Anti-Communist Union. former Czechoslovak political prisoners since 2018 under the name World Association of Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners.
The Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic is obliged to refrain from violating the principle of equal treatment and to provide subsidies on the principle of equal treatment fairly in the same amount as it was since 2002 when the Slovak Union of Anti-Fascist Fighters and the Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia provided subsidies. In 2000, was the only Association represented political prisoners.
In 2006-2021, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic violated the principle of equal treatment in the provision of subsidies by providing the Civic Associations Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia and Political Prisoners of the Anti-Communist Resistance Association disproportionately higher subsidy than the World called the World Association of Former Political Prisoners.
Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic with its registered office, Pribinova2, 812 72 Bratislava SLOVAKIA Bratislava is ordered to pay the applicant's costs and legal expenses within 3 days of the entry into force of this judgment. "

History of Civic Associations representing political prisoners and victims of communismPrior to the change in the political system, the state subsidy was provided only to the Civic Association Slovak Union of Anti-Fascist Fighters (hereinafter referred to as the SZPB), as Civic Associations representing former political prisoners were not allowed. After the fall of the communist regime, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic began to provide a subsidy to the newly established Confederation of Political Prisoners of Slovakia (KPVS), which was registered on 2 September 1991 under no. VVS / 1-909 / 90-171.
On June 13, 1999, the KPVS Assembly approved a change of name to the Union of Anti-Communist Resistance.
In September 1999, some members of the Association, which according to the statutes declared itself to be non-partisan, separated from the Association due to differing views in support of political parties and movements. According to PV ZPKO, about 15% of the membership base joined the new organization, which was transformed from the KDH-(Christian Democratic Movement) supported Club of Christian-Oriented Political Prisoners, which confirms the fact that the chairman of the newly formed association in 2002-2003 was former KDH nominee Ladislav Pittner. The Association was registered by the Ministry of the Interior on September 6, 1999 under no. SVS / 1-900 / 90-15657, abusing the change of the name of KPVS from 13 June 1999 to the Union of Anti-Communist Resistance and appropriating the name of the original organization KPVS, as KPVS did not apply for the trademark of the name of the Association. The Association, registered on 6 September 1999, is still presenting itself as the successor organization of KPVS, and this de jure does not correspond to reality. The Association misleadingly declares that it was established in 1990, as evidenced by its official statements on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of KPVS.
In 2001, a part of KPVS members joined the World Association of Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners, registered in Zurich, Switzerland, on August 21, 1968 in Poprad, on the grounds that it was not part of the KPVS program due to violation of the principle of non-partisanship and rejection of the proposal to install a Memorial to the Victims of Occupation on August,21.st 1976, which agreed with the unveiling of the Memorial to the Victims of the Occupation on August 21, 1968. Former Prosecutor General of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic Jiří Šetina appointed an appointment decree of the KPVS presidency František Bednár to establish an organization in Slovakia in accordance with the statutes of the World Association of Former Czechoslovakia. political prisoners, which is confirmed by Annex No.2. Subsequently, on August 6, 2001, the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic registered a Civic Association called the World Association of Former Czechoslovak Political Prisoners, which later became the successor organization of the original Association with this name after the termination of its activities in Switzerland and the Czech Republic. In 2006, former members of the Slovak Association of the Violently Abducted (SANO) joined the Association. With the entry of forcibly abducted NKVDs (Soviet Political Secret Police) into labor camps in the former USSR and their relatives, the Association's membership base increased to approximately the same number as stated by PV ZPKO (approximately 1,000 members) on March 29, 2018, the name was changed to the World Association of Former Political Prisoners. Annex no. 3 statutes of the Association
Since its registration in 2001, the Association has repeatedly unsuccessfully applied to the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic for a subsidy for activities such as those provided to SZPB, KPVS and PV ZPKO. At a time when the association was not provided with a subsidy, in 2002 in Poprad, it is currently unveiled in Slovakia the only Memorial to the Victims of the Occupation on August 21, 1968, with statistics on victims in the former Czechoslovakia. In 2004, the association had the bodily remains of two victims killed in 1980 on the border with Austria exhumed and transferred from Austria to Slovakia and deposited at the Memorial to the Borders at the Borders in 1948-1989 at the cemetery in Kežmarok. It was not until 2006, based on the decision of the former Minister of the Interior Vladimír Palek, that the association was included among the civic associations, which are provided with a subsidy when it was provided with a subsidy in the amount of SKK 200,000.
Evidence of discrimination in the provision of subsidies for political opinion,or other thinking, are these activities of the Association:
The activities of the project for which we applied to the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic for a subsidy in the amount of 50,000 €, in the application for a subsidy for 2021 are listed in Annex no. 11.
-adequate response to disinformation activities, especially on social networks, as well as relativisation of crimes of human fascism, and manifestations of intolerance such as the deputies of the National Council of the Slovak Republic on behalf of Marián Kotleba’s Political Party - ĽSNS – Ľudová strana Naše Slovensko – People’s Party of Our Slovakia. Also on the manifestations of relativization of the crimes of Stalinism and communism, especially by the deputy of the National Council of the Slovak Republic Ľuboš Bláha (Orthodox NeoMarxsist) and others and their destructive activities aimed at the current government. Given that the 2020 elections brought together representatives of human nationalism and representatives of political parties who, under the guise of social democracy, violated the rule of law and are responsible for widespread corruption, we considered it necessary to focus on shaping the public and especially young people. People on our National past without false deposits of nationalism and purposeful distortion of the events of our history and expand the focus of the magazine to current topics with a focus on combating the spread of disinformation, while we would like to cooperate with the Slovak Police and its official internet campaign Hoax and Fraud, to inform about cases related to economic crime, corruption, environmental protection and topics that will address the general public and especially young people
- Organizing discussions with primary and secondary school students in order to raise awareness of the periods of totalitarian regimes 1938-1989, especially in places where the teaching of history and our history is most absent, creating fertile ground for extremist groups and increasing tensions in society. In separate submissions, we proposed to the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic and the Government that the CFSP - WAFCPP, as the only one of the three Associations representing political prisoners, has a moral right to declare publicly that criminal groups, as officially stated at the Police Presidium and the Special Prosecutor's Office, support and coverage from the highest political positions.
We also suggested that we had sufficient documentary and other evidence from former members of the secret services about economic crimes committed after 1989, which we wanted to label as ongoing crimes of communism in the post-communist era, for which we wanted to initiate an international conference in cooperation with associations in Poland, Hungary and the Baltic States. Subsequently, a legal framework would be created for the adoption of legislation enabling 100% taxation of unsubstantiated property income retroactively from 1990, which could solve the current economic problems of the Slovak Republic.
