Chief justice awarded supporters big bonuses

Former Supreme Court chief justice Štefan Harabin awarded himself more than Sk1 million (23,753 euro) in bonuses in 2001 and 2002, while three other members of the Judicial Council who nominated him for reelection last December received a total of Sk1.23 million (29,200 euro), according to leaked documents.
Other members of the Judicial Council who did not vote for Harabin received Sk211,000 (5,000 euro) between them. For the same period, the eight judges of the Association of Slovak Judges received a total of Sk60,000 (1,400 euro) in bonuses.

Harabin's reelection by the Judicial Council was declared invalid last month by the Constitutional Court, which ruled that Harabin had an unfair advantage over his rival because he had a vote on the selection committee.
