The chairman of Slovakia’s Supreme Court, Chief Justice Štefan Harabin, has called a session of the court's top officials for Monday, September 6, the TASR newswire reported.

The officials will discuss the latest initiatives aimed at amending the Slovak Constitution as well as the operation of the country’s Judicial Council.

“Such a substantial change to the Constitution calls for an extensive expert discussion,” said Harabin, while criticising the proposals which he claims “do away with the independence of the judiciary”.

The session will also review the government’s programme statement regarding the judiciary. Harabin has also invited Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská, Prosecutor-General Dobroslav Trnka and Ombudsman Pavol Kandráč to attend the session, along with the chairs of regional courts and the Specialised Criminal Court.
