The security fence around the US Embassy in Hviezdoslavovo Square is in dispute, and one Bratislava city councillor took to a letter to inform Trump of the illegal use of public space. In the protracted dispute surrounding the ugly fence around the US Embassy in Bratislava, city councillor Martin Borguľa has sent a letter to US President-elect Donald Trump, informing him about the current situation with the security fence. The disputed fence is currently an illegal construction, as the lease of the embassy expired on August 15. Since the US Embassy has lost the right to use the area, it unlawfully uses the public space, Borguľa argued. With his letter, the councillor wants to point to the fact that despite several warnings and protests the embassy has not made steps to remove the fence. Borguľa deems this an illegal occupation of public space and unprecedented disrespect for the laws of the Slovak republic. He adds that he mostly wanted to point to the fact that US Embassy in Slovakia has made no steps so far to remove the fence from the Hviezdoslavovo Square.
