Judges property under scrutiny

THE JUSTICE Ministry has published property declarations from judges for 2004 on the Internet. The ministry views the move as a significant step in its fight against corruption within the judiciary, the daily SME reported.

The Justice Ministry assumes that the public will regularly scrutinize judges declarations and file complaints if they notice anything suspicious.

"We will review all citizens' complaints," Richard Fides, spokesman for the Justice Department, said.

The public has been able to examine growth in judges property since 2003, when they first became obliged to publish property declarations on the Internet.

According to daily, the wealthiest judge remains Pavol Polka of Žilina's district court, who owns three houses and three apartments.

Polka has been refused a security clearance by the National Security Office, which claimed that his property does not correspond with his available income.
