Judges' immunity to be limited

THE JUSTICE Ministry wants to cut judges' immunity from prosecution down to crimes related to their decision making.

The ministry plans to produce a draft constitutional law that would also eliminate the requirement that the Constitutional Court (ÚS SR) must approve any criminal proceedings against judges and state attorneys.

But according to the Slovak daily Pravda, Robert Kaliňák from the opposition Smer party thinks that the ÚS SR approval was a safeguard for independence in cases that included judges versus state bodies.
