JUSTICE Minister Štefan Harabin has proposed a 70 percent cut in wages for half a year for Milan Karabín, the chief justice of the Slovak Supreme Court, after the latter refused to let a ministry inspector enter his court.

The minister forwarded the proposal for disciplinary action against Karabín to the Constitutional Court on October 13.

The ministry does not want to comment on the case before it is resolved. Karabín also did not comment as he is on a business trip until the end of this week, the Sme daily wrote.

Harabin also recently pointed to what he believes is Karabín's low level of activity of as a judge.
