Justice Ministry denies plans to lay off senior court staff

THE JUSTICE Ministry does not plan to lay off any senior court clerks, according to ministry spokesman Michal Jurči, despite media reports of planned mass dismissals in the judiciary.

The Justice Ministry does not plan to sack any of the 774 higher judicial clerks in the state service. On the contrary, Jurči said, the ministry expects that some of them will win posts as judges in upcoming job tenders.

"In the first phase, 100 judicial posts should be filled, while another 100 judicial vacancies should be filled in the next stage," said Justice Minister Štefan Harabin.
