PM Robert Fico believes that there are more reasons to preserve the Special Court for corruption cases than there are to abolish it.
"Based on the analysis which I have, I can make a preliminary statement, which is that I think there are more reasons to keep it than to abolish it," the prime minister said.
He added that if it proves necessary "to make some adjustments" in the court’s role, these changes should be made, but that this could take a long time, the daily Sme wrote.
The ruling coalition HZDS party has pushed for the abolition of the Special Court since the government was formed in July, but Fico’s Smer party has called for an expert debate before any moves are made.
