A gathering organised by the SDKÚ, SMK and KDH opposition parties in support of the Special Court in front of the Justice Ministry in Bratislava on Wednesday, May 27, featured prominent opposition politicians and personalities from the cultural world.

In a speech to those assembled, SDKÚ leader Mikuláš Dzurinda expressed concerns about Justice Minister Štefan Harabin's bid for the post of Supreme Court chairman, pointing to the minister's past contacts with Albanian drug baron Baki Sadiki, the TASR wrote.

The Government on May 27 approved a proposal to set up a Specialised Criminal Court in Pezinok (Bratislava Region) that would take over the activities of the current Special Court, which was declared unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court last week. Parliament will now discuss the legislative proposal in fast-tracked legislative proceedings in June.

Slightly over 100 sympathisers came to support the protest, 'For A Legal State, for Justice in Slovakia', also organised by the opposition SDKÚ, KDH, and SMK parties, in front of the former building of Slovakia’s Constitutional Court in Košice on the same day. “The Mafia is laughing at us, and we, politicians, are angry about this,” KDH chairman Pavol Hrušovský told the gathering. He added that crime, hatred, intolerance, corruption and cronyism are winning today over justice, decency, and responsibility. TASR
