The Office of the Prosecutor General has requested that the Constitutional Court suspend the effectiveness of the law on minimum wages, since it considers it to be at odds with the constitution, as well as the European Convention on Human Rights. It has requested the abolition of an amendment passed by the previous government based on which hospital nurses were supposed to receive higher salaries as of April 2012, the Sme daily reported.
