Judicial Council seeks to discipline constitutional judges

Slovakia’s Judicial Council, chaired by Štefan Harabin, may bring disciplinary proceedings against three justices of the Constitutional Court, Ján Luby, Ľudmila Gajdošíková and Ladislav Orosz, over their ruling in a complaint brought by Daniel Hudák, a close ally of Harabin when he was a Justice Minister.

Slovakia’s Judicial Council, chaired by Štefan Harabin, may bring disciplinary proceedings against three justices of the Constitutional Court, Ján Luby, Ľudmila Gajdošíková and Ladislav Orosz, over their ruling in a complaint brought by Daniel Hudák, a close ally of Harabin when he was a Justice Minister.

The Judicial Council will vote about filing a motion with the Constitutional Court’s Chief Justice, Ivetta Macejková, the Sme daily wrote on September 6. The council alleges that the senate consisting of Luby, Gajdošíková and Orosz decided in an arbitrary and biased way, thus threatening trust in the Constitutional Court. Hudák had contested the government’s decision through which he, Viliam Dohňanský and Richard Molnár were removed from the Judicial Council.

Sme wrote that the judiciary does not have a unified position on the case and wrote that most judges do not believe the whole senate was biased – if anyone at all was – and that it was Hudák’s attorney who should have contested the verdict not the Judicial Council.

If Macejková accepts the motion it would be the first instance of Constitutional Court justices facing disciplinary proceeding, according to Sme. The Constitutional Court has not commented the council’s request at this point in time.
