Judges' property declarations posted on internet

THE PROPERTY declarations of Slovak judges are available for public perusal at the Justice Ministry's website www.justice.gov.sk as of September 5.

Justice Ministry spokesman Richard Fides told the state-run news agency TASR that this measure is aimed at strengthening the fight against corruption in the sector.

The declarations contain information on real estate and other properties owned by the judges.

The obligation for judges to publish their property declarations was introduced with the new law on judges and was one of the ministry's priorities that were also enshrined in the current cabinet's legislative programme.
