Slovakia has representative in Eurojust

JUSTICE Minister Štefan Harabín officially appointed a prosecutor from the Prosecutor General Office, Ladislav Hamran, to be Slovakia's national representative in Eurojust.

This EU organisation oversees cooperation between the law enforcement authorities of member states, the SITA newswire wrote on September 6.

Currently, Slovakia is working on more than 120 cases in Eurojust. Hamran will take them over from his predecessor, Peter Paluda, who was recalled. Paluda was a former Supreme Court Justice, so he could not be involved in the investigation stages of Eurojust proceedings. Harabin recalled him in early July.
