According to Country Reports 1993, there have been a few incidents involving "skinhead violence and vandalism" directed against the Jewish community in 1993 (1994, 1057). These incidents have all been condemned by the Slovak authorities (ibid.). No further information on the above-mentioned topic is currently available to the DIRB in Ottawa. Please find attached a copy of Response to Information Request CSK1332 of 10 July 1989 and attachments.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
