Hrubala Resigns as deputy chief justice at Special Court

JÁN Hrubala announced on August 2 that he has decided to step down as Deputy Chief Justice at the Special Court in Pezinok as of August 31.

Hrubala informed Justice Minister Stefan Harabin of his decision citing personal reasons. He would not specify the reasons, however.

Although he will step down from the deputy chief justice post, he will stay on at the court as a judge and as the head of one of the court's senates, SME wrote.

Hrubala was appointed to the deputy chief justice post by former justice minister Daniel Lipsic in May 2005.

Igor Králik, the chief justice of the Special Court, which was set up by the previous government to decide on the top level mafia and corruption cases, will name Hrubala's successor. His choice has to be okayed by Justice Minister Štefan Harabin.
