Opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) deputy and former Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská has proposed that Slovakia's courts publish all their verdicts on the internet within three days after they come into force, the SITA newswire wrote.

Žitňanská delivered a draft revision of the Act on Courts with this proposal to parliament on November 13. She proposes that the revision take effect as of April 2010.

“Citizens consider judiciary and law enforcement to be one of the main problems and trust is the foundation of the relationship between a citizen and a court,” she said.

She thinks that people's trust in courts to hand down objective and fair verdicts is not only a matter of a short campaign, but also a matter of specific steps to open the judiciary toward the public. SITA
