Acting general prosecutor Ladislav Tichý will turn to the Constitutional Court over the new wording of the law on the prosecution service, the SITA newswire wrote on Friday, August 12.

"The proposal is being prepared, the question is only in what scope it will be. We definitely object to the participation of the justice minister in various commissions and of the executive power just in commissions, regardless of whether disciplinary commissions, selection commissions or commissions creating our internal rules are at stake," the general prosecutor's spokeswoman, Jana Tokolyová, quoted Tichý as saying.
