The Visegrad Four countries (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland) do not intend to join the German regulation fining operators of large social networks for online hate speech, Slovak Justice Minister Gabor Gal told journalists today. The fine is to be imposed if the operators do not erase hate speech and slander immediately after warning. The topic was part of the talks, also attended by Croatia. The Czech Republic was represented by Justice Minister Marie Benesova. "At present, none of the (V4) countries wants to follow the German path," Gal said.
