Disinfo: The Slovak minister of Interior Kaliňák paid €2

Summary

The Slovak minister of Interior Kaliňák paid €2.8 million to accept migrants, while Slovak children suffer without treatment.

Disproof

The claim adopted from a conspiracy website is based on four grant agreements for the Slovak Humanity Council, Marginal Civic Association, and the Human Rights League. In reality, the Interior Ministry sent €705,000 to these institutions and the rest goes from the Fund for Asylum, Migration, and Integration. The money from the fund is to allow for a dignified waiting period of the migrants until their asylum request is processed, and for their subsequent integration if the country accepts them. Furthermore, the Slovak Constitution guarantees free-of-charge health care also for children. Further debunking here bit.ly/2lD55Pj, .
