Judges to declare assets

PARLIAMENT has approved a Judicial Council Law that reduces political influence over the judiciary, increases judges' self-governance, and requires judges, their wives and minor-age children to declare their assets. "I feel as if a stone has fallen from my heart," said Justice Minister Ján Čarnogurský after the vote, in which 81 of 82 MPs present in the 150-seat chamber supported the law.
