Court dissolves two commissions

The Constitutional Court on November 29 ruled that the parliament's creation of investigative commissions is unconstitutional, Sme and Pravda reported. Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) Deputy Chairman Ivan Šimko, who represents the 42 opposition deputies who appealed to the court over the issue, said at least two commissions will have to stop working immediately- the only one investigating the March 1994 "constitutional crisis," which marked the fall of Prime Minister Mečiar's previous government, and the one investigating the death of Prague Spring leader Alexander Dubček. The former is especially controversial since its purpose is to gather evidence to dismiss President Kováč from office.
