Supreme Court ineligible to rule on Lexa

The Attorney General’s Office said a Supreme Court tribunal released former secret service head Ivan Lexa from jail in August against the law, without giving an explanation, and without competence to decide the question.

However, the office has not said whether it will charge the justices in question with abuse of power. To do so, it will need approval from the Supreme Court.
