Judge sacked, first time ever

FOR the first time ever in Slovakia, the Supreme Court's disciplinary panel has punished a judge by using its highest possible sanction: dismissal as a judge. Banská Bystrica regional court judge Alexander Mojš has appealed the decision.

Mojš continued acting in a bankruptcy proceeding of the company Preglejka when the group of creditors filed an objection of prejudice against him.

Although in the past he has called for tougher penalties for erring judges, Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic disagreed with the punishment, saying that he believed that Mojš had not acted unjustly.

President of the Banská Bystrica regional court Ľudovít Bradáč assumes that the sacking of the judge will increase tensions within the judiciary and evoke negative reactions from the public.
