MP tells schools to ignore new rule

Mojmír Mamojka, head of the parliamentary Constitutional and Judicial Committee, has told universities to ignore the new law designed by Education Minister Jan Mikolaj, the daily Pravda wrote.

The new law restricts university professors’ working hours and bans "flying professors" from holding positions at more than one university. Mamojka, who is a professor himself and works at three universities, said he does not want to give up any of his jobs, and believes that shouldn’t be illegal.

The new law should take effect at the beginning of next year. SITA
