World Bank report says Slovak courts lack good management

Slovak courts are slow, corrupt, and thus untrustworthy, says a report by World Bank experts on the state of judicial sectors in Slovakia.

The analysis identifies weak management of the justice system as the main problem of the Slovak judiciary, news wire SITA reports.

The study has also diagnosed shortcomings in the country's legal services market, claiming that the costs of these services are much higher than Slovak citizens can afford.

The bank is co-operating with the Slovak Justice Ministry in the preparation of a "judicial roadmap" along with the consolidation of judiciary and its budget system.
