Law to strip judges of immunity to bare minimum

THE JUSTICE Ministry wants to cut the immunity of judges down to crimes related to the decision of their verdicts.

The ministry's planned constitutional law would also eliminate the requirement of agreement from the Constitutional Court (ÚS SR) prior to criminal proceedings against judges and state attorneys.

But, according to the Slovak daily Pravda, Robert Kaliňák from the opposition party Smer thinks that the ÚS SR agreement was a safeguard of independence in cases where judges were in conflict with state security bodies.
