Re: Supreme Court suspected of breaching law, By Martina Pisárová, May 26 - June 1, Vol 9, No 20
As a foreign investor in Slovakia, I welcome the incidents in Supreme Court as positive signs that the old guard begin to understand that they cannot keep on using that well-esteemed institution as if it were their own garden.
As an example: We won a case in a local court this year and our opponent appealed the decision of the local court to Supreme Court. We were sure that our rights should also have been protected by the Supreme Court, however we were told by some professionals that we are going to lose the case in the Supreme Court since our opponent had a good relationship with the judges there.
I think it is terrible if this claim is true. I would never dare to recommend anyone invest in a country where the Supreme Court's independence from politicians and friends is questionable.
