NEWS BRIEFS

Supreme Court judges drop out

THE HEAD of the country's Supreme Court, Milan Karabin, said that his court faced problems with staff after 17 out of 78 justices recently quit their posts.

Karabin described the situation as "problematic", the private news agency SITA wrote.

Karabin said at a press conference that the lack of judges forces all chairmen of the existing court's panels to also serve as the chairmen of senates in court proceedings.

Karabin suggested that, among other reasons, judges may be leaving the ranks because of the recent legislative proposal to freeze their wages and cancel their pension bonuses.
