Bratislava, November 28 (TASR) – The support and promotion of sexual pathology, namely pedophilia, zoophilia and necrophilia, will be considered a crime in Slovakia as of 2020 following the approval in Parliament on Thursday of an amendment to the Penal Code sponsored by the co-governing Slovak National Party (SNS).


What otherwise could be deemed as unlawful promotion of these actions will still be possible for the sake of education, treatment and research, however.

According to SNS, the initiative was partly a response to recent articles in the press that seemed to justify the aforementioned sexual disorders.
