The ministry made public the legislative plan of re-codification of the civil law, the SITA newswire wrote.

“This is one of the most break-through legal constructions that we are preparing,” Justice Minister Tomáš Borec explained for SITA. “The regulation so far has not been meeting the requirements of current times any more.”

The planned changes should improve the enforceability of laws for citizens and business persons .
