Courts, corruption in sights

JUSTICE MINISTER Daniel Lipšic says he plans to fine judges who fail to proceed with court cases, hoping to reduce the 349 complaints of undue delay in lower-court trials that have been lodged with the Constitutional Court, the country's top judicial body.

Lipšic also repeated his determination to pass a law requiring people to explain where they obtained their assets if asked, saying the bill could be introduced to parliament within several months.
