Court rules libel paragraph outdated

The Constitutional Court ruled yesterday that paragraphs 102 and 103 on libelling the republic, high ranking constitutional officials and the president are outdated and should be dropped from the country's legislation. President Rudolf Schuster said he respected the ruling but he did not say whether he would initiate drop charges against Nový Čas journalist, Aleš Krátky, for his critical editorial on Schuster's State of the nation address last year.
