THE DAUGHTER of late judge Marta Lauková, who shortly before her death in September claimed that her superior, Gabriela Buľubášová, the head of the Bratislava I district court, had attempted to influence one of her decisions, is asking that the investigation of her mother’s complaint continues.
Judge Lauková filed a criminal complaint against Buľubášová in which she claimed her superior tried to improperly influence her. As evidence she submitted a note from Buľubášová which stated that she should release a certain prisoner. Judge Lauková did not do so and shortly afterwards she was transferred from the penal department to the civil law department. Then she became ill, was on sick leave, and was stripped of certain bonuses as her court superiors alleged that her sick leave was purposeful.
The police stopped prosecution against Buľubášová and closed the case, stating that no crime had been committed.
“It’s not a coincidence that two months after my mother’s death they stopped the criminal prosecution,” her daughter Zuzana Lauková told the Sme daily.
