Justice Minister demands money

JUSTICE Minister Štefan Harabin demanded that his predecessor, Daniel Lipšic, repay Sk2.4 million that the ministry paid for a series of surveys last year. According to Harabin, the surveys aimed to improve the ex-minister's personal image, and thus represented an abuse of public funds.

Lipšic rejected the allegations and said that the polls had aimed to discover what people felt about the Justice Ministry, the judiciary, and correctional and courtroom security officers. Only one question in the poll was related to the former minister, the SITA news agency wrote.

Lipšic insisted that in politics, the opinions of the public are important.

"As a former communist judge, Mr. Harabin might ignore the opinion of citizens, but if we want to do good politics, these opinions are important" Lipšic said.
