IN SHORT

Seven courts will be in session again

SEVEN district courts are set to re-open their doors in 2008.

Justice Minister Štefan Harabin said he hopes this will reduce the number of old unsolved cases and shorten proceedings at courts.

On August 22, the Slovak cabinet approved a draft amendment to the law on seats and centres of operation for courts in Slovakia, the SITA newswire wrote.

The former government of Mikuláš Dzurinda closed 10 district courts during reforms to the courts' organisational structure. The seven that will re-open are in Malacky, Pezinok, Piešťany, Skalica, Bánovce nad Bebravou, Nové Mesto nad Váhom and Námestovo.
