Justice Minister Štefan Harabin has filed a motion with the Supreme Court to disbar an unnamed Bratislava Regional Court judge over inaction on an assigned case and unjustifiable delays, it was reported on June 23.

The inaction is reported to have occurred between April 2005-June 2007. Harabin asked the court to find the judge guilty of a grave disciplinary violation.

The motion follows a similar one filed by Harabin earlier in June against a Žiar nad Hronom (Banská Bystrica region) District Court judge who allegedly caused unwarranted delays ranging from three months to three years while presiding over a court in Levice (Nitra region). TASR
