NEWS BRIEFS

Special crime courts ready in July

THE NEW Special Court and Special Attorney's Office, which were set up to fight organized crime, will finally have the legally required number of staff members on July 1, according to the Pravda daily.

Both institutions should have started functioning in September 2004.

The Special Court did not have enough judges to sit on all four of its three-member benches.

The Special Attorney's Office faced a similar situation with its prosecutors.

In order to encourage interest in the judicial and legal positions, Slovak parliament approved an amendment offering higher salaries to future Special Court judges and prosecutors for the Special Attorney's Office.

Both institutions will be situated in Pezinok, close to Bratislava.
