Tipos welcomes Constitutional Court ruling on Lemikon lawsuit

Slovakia’s state-owned lottery company, Tipos, welcomed the Constitutional Court’s ruling that a past verdict by the Supreme Court on the case involving Tipos and Lemikon company issued in November 2010 infringed upon Tipos's right to legal protection, its right to not have the case taken away from the initially-appointed judges and its right to a fair trial, according to a statement released to the TASR newswire on November 7 by Tipos.

Slovakia’s state-owned lottery company, Tipos, welcomed the Constitutional Court’s ruling that a past verdict by the Supreme Court on the case involving Tipos and Lemikon company issued in November 2010 infringed upon Tipos's right to legal protection, its right to not have the case taken away from the initially-appointed judges and its right to a fair trial, according to a statement released to the TASR newswire on November 7 by Tipos.

The Sme daily wrote in its November 7 issue that the Constitutional Court found the Supreme Court's verdict on Lemikon court case to be "unfair" and to contain a number of serious shortcomings, with certain evidence disregarded and answers to significant legal questions missing.

The lawsuit involves claims by the Cyprus-based Lemikon company that Tipos had infringed on the know-how and intellectual property rights of a Czech lottery company, whose legal claims were purchased by Lemikon.

According to the head of Tipos, Miloš Ronec, the Constitutional Court's ruling opens the way for a fair hearing of an appeal that had been submitted by then-General Prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka in the case and subsequently proper consideration of the entire legal dispute which has been hanging over a the state-owned lottery company for ten years.
