THE FORMER general director of public broadcaster Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS), Miloslava Zemková, who was removed from her post by Slovakia’s parliament in late June, filed another complaint with the country’s Constitutional Court on July 11, saying that her basic rights were violated by parliament, the TASR newswire reported.

This is Zemková’s second complaint to the Constitutional Court after her first was rejected by the court on July 9 for not meeting the necessary legal requirements.

Zemková was removed as RTVS general director on June 26 after 82 MPs voted in support of a motion from parliament’s media committee to sack her before the end of her five-year term. The opposition boycotted the vote and said the action was a political move by the Smer party to take control of the public broadcaster.
