Harabin rewards self, supporters

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 (SR) 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 SR who did not vote for Harabin received Sk211,000 (5,000 euro) between them.

Harabin's reelection by the SR 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.
