Re: Justice minister plans to reopen closed courts, Vol. 12 No. 35, Sept. 4-10
In the late 1990's I served with an American Bar Association programme seeking to help the Slovak Ministry of Justice improve the Slovak court system. We concluded that, considering budget constraints and the comparatively large number of courts available to the Slovak people on a per capita basis, some reduction in their number was in order. I seriously doubt that the reductions made by the previous government place the EU's goal of access to justice in jeopardy. I am left wondering what the real reason for the announced plan for reinstatement of what seem to be excess courts might be.
