Harabin proposed the strictest punishment, namely a proposal to remove the justice from office, for only one of the two judges. He suggested that the second judge be demoted to a court of a lower instance. Peter Preti, a spokesman for the Supreme Court, did not specify the names
of the justices, SITA wrote. SITA
