Slovakia regularly reports police data and data on sentencing to ODIHR. Slovakia's criminal code includes substantive offences and a specific penalty-enhancement clause affixed to a large number of base offences. While sentencing data only comprise hate crimes, police data also include hate speech offences. The Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Justice and the Prosecutor's Office collect hate crime data.
Hate crimes recorded by police
Unlike the overall figure presented above, the police figure by bias motivation here refers to crimes recorded as having a "specific motivation", i.e., hate crimes.
Racism and xenophobia, Bias against Roma and Sinti, Bias against Muslims, Bias against other groups - Sexual orientation or gender identity
The United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) published relevant recommendations in its "Report from the Thirty-second session: Compilation of UN information on Slovakia."
ODIHR observes that Slovakia has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech.
