View judges' worth online

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 legal 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 enshrined in the current cabinet's legislative programme.
