On January 2, the Pravda daily wrote that the Justice Ministry is opposing the requirement under the Freedom of Information Act that it provide information on its employees' salaries and bonuses. The issue was taken to the Regional Court in Bratislava, which, according to the daily, decided that the requirement is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy. The case is now headed to the Constitutional Court, which will have the final say.
In the meantime, the Justice Ministry will have to continue complying with the law. SITA
