Just like members of parliament, judges in Slovakia will also lose their immunity from criminal prosecution, the Pravda daily wrote in its Tuesday, January 15, issue.
Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška, Constitutional Court President Ivetta Macejková and the Slovak Association of Judges agreed on the amendment in December when they discussed judges' salaries. Now the opposition and the biggest professional organisation of judges will be able to comment on it, Robert Madej, the head of the parliamentary constitutional and judicial committee who is the author of the amendment, told the daily.
