The Constitutional Court at its closed session in Košice on May 11 dealt with two proposals submitted by Justice Minister Lucia Žitňanská, who has called on the court to launch a disciplinary proceeding against Supreme Court Chairman Štefan Harabin, the TASR newswire reported.
The court's spokesperson, Anna Pancurová, told TASR that the court accepted both proposals and will deal with them in due course.
In proposing the disciplinary proceeding Žitňanská cited Harabin's conduct when he refused to allow the Finance Ministry to carry out an audit at the Supreme Court several times last year.
If Žitňanská succeeds in her initiative, Harabin's salary would be reduced by 70 percent for the period of one year. A court session on the proposal has been scheduled for June 15.
