MPs cannot be fined for driving offences

ACCORDING to an amendment proposed by the Interior Ministry, MPs could use their deputy immunity to avoid being fined for driving offences, the Interior Minister Vladimír Palko confirmed for news wire TASR.

Palko explained that until the Constitutional Court decides that MP immunity does not cover driving offences, the ministry would accept this rule and the police would refrain from issuing fines to MPs.

Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic criticized the deputy exemption from driving offence fines. Lipšic, who has been advocating limiting deputy immunity, plans to draft an amendment that would restrict deputy immunity to only cover statements made in parliament.
