THOUSANDS of motions have flooded the Constitutional Court. From February 6 to February 11, the company Lawyer Partners filed 14,595 nearly identical complaints with the court, the SITA newswire wrote.

The firm, involved in claiming overdue listener fees from listeners of the public Slovak Radio, complains that several district courts have not accepted its electronically filed complaints. It demands that its complaints be processed without unnecessary delay.

Constitutional Court President Ivetta Macejková said at a press conference on February 19 that the registration of such a big number of complaints will take about three months. The court has already hired two administrative workers to do the job.

"We do our best to process the complaints within nine months of their registration," said Macejková.

But the whole process will be administratively demanding and expensive. For example, sending final verdicts in only written form will cost the court Sk1 million at least, the Sme daily wrote.
