NEWS BRIEFS

Deputy chairwoman named

ON MAY 30, Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič named Daniela Švecová as deputy chairwoman of the Slovak Supreme Court, making her the first woman ever to hold that position.

Švecová says she wants to improve the quality of judicial decisions and reduce the time it takes for verdicts to be reached, TASR news agency wrote.

She also believes judges should have the right to choose an assistant rather than being assigned one and favours posting court decisions on the Internet.
