Čentéš case has finally moved forward

THE CONSTITUTIONAL Court will deal with the objection filed by Jozef Čentéš on December 28, 2012, in which he complained about violating his basic right when then president Ivan Gašparovič refused to appoint him to the general prosecutor post. The decision was passed by the first senate composed of Ladislav Orosz, Ľudmila Gajdošíková and Marianna Mochnáčová at a non-public session, the SITA newswire reported on July 23.

The decision was passed by the first senate composed of Ladislav Orosz, Ľudmila Gajdošíková and Marianna Mochnáčová at a non-public session, the SITA newswire reported on July 23.

“I expect that the Constitutional Court will decide over the matter in a reasonable period,” Čentéš told SITA.

The parliament elected Čentéš as general prosecutor in June 2011, after he was supported by 79 of 89 MPs present. Gašparovič, however, refused to appoint him. The Constitutional Court could not decide on the issue because of the objections gradually submitted by both Čentéš and Gašparovič that in fact blocked the court. The situation changed after new President Andrej Kiska withdrew all complaints against Constitutional Court justices filed by his predecessor, SITA wrote.
