“I honour the law and the Slovak Constitution, which I fulfil, therefore I'm not afraid of false accusations made by Paluda,” said Harabin.

Paluda has submitted other two complaints against Harabin in the past. Although they were dismissed by police, they are being supplemented now. Paluda's complaint concerns unpaid bonuses to judges, which he views as an especially serious abuse of office. TASR
