Poll shows majority support preservation of the Slovak Special Court

More than seven out of ten respondents polled want to see parliament adopt a constitutional law or an amendment to the Constitution which would enable the Slovak Special Court, established by the previous government to combat high-level corruption and organized crime, to continue, reported the SITA newswire.

More than seven out of ten respondents polled want to see parliament adopt a constitutional law or an amendment to the Constitution which would enable the Slovak Special Court, established by the previous government to combat high-level corruption and organized crime, to continue, reported the SITA newswire.

As many as 77.6 percent of the supporters of parties in the governing coalition voters and 86.6 percent of supporters of the opposition parties support such a step, based on a public opinion survey carried out by Polis Slovakia agency on May 23-24 on a sample of 793 respondents. The poll asked about people’s reaction to the Constitutional Court's verdict that establishment of the Special Court contradicted the Slovak Constitution.

Almost two-thirds of those polled were concerned about last week's verdict by the Constitutional Court which will terminate the work of the Special Court, the SITA newswire wrote. Almost 70 percent of the respondents said that termination of the Special Court would have negative consequences on serious crime and bribery in Slovakia (73.4 percent coalition voters and 86.6 percent opposition voters).
