Slovak Readers: Become A No Citizen?

Recent Slovak law against dual citizenship has introduced fines and a loss of Slovak citizenship in case you voluntarily throw yourself to the wolves (state bureaucrats) telling them about your other citizenship.

So, I had this idea: what if you pretended to gain a foreign citizenship and would allow Slovak bureaucrats to void your Slovak citizenship? I am not sure if there are any particular processes in force to check, if your foreign citizenship really exists. If not, it would be pretty easy to loose the citizenship of Slovakia and become a stateless person.

You would then be able to apply for the stateless’ person travel document as Mike Gogulski did.

If you wanted to give up the Slovak citizenship in 2004, you would pay about 670 EUR (20000 SKK). I haven’t been able to locate the newer information.

What do you think? Would it be possible to give up the Slovak citizenship without bureaucrats actually checking if you had a valid foreign citizenship? Does the new Slovak law allow for that?
