Female judges protest prejudice

THE NATIONAL Association of Female Judges (NASS) said that the presence of only one of their colleagues on the country's recently-formed Judicial Council was evidence of "deeply rooted prejudice against women in society".

The self-ruling council, composed of 18 members, is expected to increase judicial independence in Slovakia, and has exclusive authority to adjudicate personnel matters in the judiciary.

The one female representative on the council is Justice Ida Hanzelová, elected by judges themselves among the eight council members they were allowed to appoint.
