Lawyer Partners to pursue listener fees issue with EU

Lawyer Partners, the company that holds the contract to collect overdue license fees from listeners of the public service Slovak Radio (SRo) says it plans to file a motion with the Constitutional Court to determine whether a recently-passed law in the Slovak parliament is in line with the Slovak Constitution. The law gives a general pardon to listeners who had not paid their fees.

Daniel Palko, chairman of the board of Lawyer Partners, made the announcement in an interview with the economic daily Hospodárske noviny. Palko also said his company intends to pursue the matter before judicial bodies of the European Union.
