Minister attacks slow courts

Justice Minister Ján Čarnogurský has attacked courts for not moving quicker in cases against people suspected of crimes carried out under the last government. Čarnogurský said December 6 he wanted the courts to move quicker in a slew of cases against people connected to the former PM Vladimír Mečiar, including many against dubious privatisers.

Among cases connected with the Mečiar regime which are under investigation are two massive financial crimes - the allegedly illegal privatisation of the Piešťany spa by Karol Martinka, and the sale of a stake in state gas storage firm Nafta Gbely by businessman Vladimír Poór.
