Publication of court decisions on the internet, public selection procedures to appoint judges and court chairmen, public tests for judges, and cancellation of bonuses for judges will all be introduced under an amendment proposed by Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská and approved by the Slovak Parliament on Wednesday, December 8.
The amendment is part of the first package of measures intended to open the judiciary to public scrutiny, the SITA newswire wrote on Wednesday, December 8. The minister said her draft would bring greater transparency to the judiciary, reduce the space for internal corruption and strengthen the independence of serving judges.
